The 2004 Energy Efficiency Law authorised energy companies producing electricity from co-generation to sell their production to the public utility STEG and transport it through the national grid. The present Law on Energy Efficiency widens this support framework by allowing any establishment, or group of establishments in the industry, agriculture and services, to produce electricity from energy saving co-generation or renewable energy, and to sell it to STEG.
Electricty production from renewable sources should not exceed 30% of total annual production, and its purchase price will be fixed annually by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Small and Medium enterprises.
