National Renewable Energy Programme (2005-2020)
It aims to promote reliable, independent and effective operation of centralised energy grids and regional power supply systems by increased use of renewable energy. Another objective of this Programme is to provide power to all distant settlements, which require a significant amount of resources to be connected to the centralised power grid system, by introducing renewable energy generating systems. The Programme is related to the Energy Law and the 100,000 Solar Houses (Gers), which aims to provide rural areas with electricity through the utilisation of solar energy. It also establishes a target to increase the share of renewable energy, relative to total electricity production, reaching 3-5% by 2010 and 20-25% by 2020.
