Law No. 04-09 relative to Renewable Energy Promotion in the Framework of Sustainable Development
Builds on the general commitments outlined in Law No. 99-09 relative to the Management of Energy, laying the foundations for a requisite “national programme to support renewable energy within the context of sustainable development.”
Codifies Algeria’s environmental mission to: promote the domestic development of renewable energy sources, to curb climate change by limiting GHG emissions, and to encourage sustainable development via the conservation and preservation of fossil fuel resources. Consistent with this mission, this law establishes a National Observatory/Centre for the Promotion of Renewable Energy.
Serves as the framework for the Ministry of Energy and Mines detailed Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme (2011-2030), released in March 2011, which establishes specific quantitative targets for renewables.
