Law of self-generation (Law 16.08)

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 9 December 2013

Law 16.08, voted in 2008, raised the ceiling for self-generation by industrial sites from 10MW to 50MW. The Law was conceived principally to support wind power, but applies equally to other renewable energy technologies.

This Law amends the 1963 Decree that established ONE and attributed ONE with a monopoly to produce electricity in instillations with a generation capacity greater than 10 MW.
