The Law:

  • enshrines the rights and obligations of energy consumers
  • defines the competencies of government bodies in the field of energy conservation and compliance monitoring
  • introduces mandatory state energy inspections of facilities and buildings and determines the procedure for conducting energy audits
  • provides for measures to stimulate energy saving, including preferential loans, tax preferences and tariff policy
  • reinforces the legal regulation in the field of energy saving
  • prioritises the scientific, technical and economic feasibility of energy-saving measures, introduction of energy-efficient equipment, technologies and materials

The project also focuses on raising general public awareness on the efficient use of energy and benefits of sustainable energy.
