      Policy description "The 5th FYDP (2010-2015) adopted an environmental assessment of strategic policies and plans as well as an ecosystem-based approach to the management of wetlands and biodiversity. It also incorporated climate change considerations.

      "In order to reduce the country’s dependence on oil and gas and diversify energy supply, the 5th FYDP calls for the optimisation of production and an increase in power plant efficiency, reducing waste and development of Combined Heat and Power. With this objective, affiliated companies are required: (i) to subsidise the purchase of electricity from dispersed small-scale electricity producers through long-term contracts and to convert 12,000MW to gas; (ii) to guarantee long-term contracts to purchase electricity generated from renewable energy sources and clean energy; and (iii) support the development of small-scale power plants that generate electricity by the private sector and co-operative companies."
