The National RD&D Plan (2000-2003), promulgated by the government in 1999, became effective in 2000. The plan integrates many horizontal and specific programmes such as the National Energy Programme (PROFIT-Energía). It focuses on four key actions: cleaner energy systems, including renewable energy sources and fuel cells; technologies for the transmission, storage, distribution, and rational and efficient use of energy; new propelling systems and fuels for the road transport sector; and complementary actions (fossil fuels, renewable energy integration, nuclear safety, environmental impact, etc.).
