Energy efficiency holds an important place in the country's energy policy. Indeed, a proactive programme for 2030 on energy efficiency was adopted by the Algerian government in 2016. In particular, it provides for a reduction in energy demand from 80 Mtoe to 73 Mtoe by 2030. The implementation of this multisectoral programme would generate a cumulative gain of 63 Mtoe by 2030.
To promote energy efficiency, Algeria has promulgated a series of regulations for more than twenty years and is still looking for an appropriate framework to better address the energy transition. However, the regulatory and incentive framework for energy efficiency needs to be improved in order to achieve the national objectives.
This study aims at elaborating an inventory of the energy efficiency regulations in Algeria and at benchmarking with selected countries in order to draw the best practices for the development and promotion of energy efficiency. The study covers the following areas:
