About rational use of energy resources and energy efficiency
This Law according to Item 11 of part I of article 94 of the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic determines legal, organizational and economic basis of state policy in the field of rational use of energy resources and increase in energy efficiency and governs the relations between them.
This Law governs the relations arising in the field of production, storage, transfer, distribution, sale and energy consumption and extends to the state bodies (organizations) operating in this sphere, physical persons and legal entities, including final consumers.
2.1. The basic concepts used in this Law have the following values:
2.1.1. energy (energy resources) - all types of energy products, including fuel, renewable energy resources, electric, thermal, hydraulic power and other types of energy;
2.1.2. energy efficiency - product ratio (works, services) or energies to the consumed energy;
2.1.3. business entity - the legal entities or physical persons performing business activity without formation of legal entity;
2.1.4. rational use of energy resources - more economic use of energy resources (energy) in case of decrease in technogenic impact on the environment;
2.1.5. measures for energy efficiency - complex of the organizational, legal, scientific, technology and economic measures directed to effective use of energy resources;
2.1.6. energy saving - decrease in amount of the consumed energy as a result of application of measures for increase in energy efficiency;
2.1.7. energy audit - assessment of the non-residential territories and farms for the purpose of receipt of information on energy consumption and identification of cost-efficient opportunities of energy consumption;
2.1.8. the power accountant - the physical person which is conforming to requirements, the established this Law, and carrying out energy audit, having the higher energy and economic education and length of service on the corresponding specialty at least 3 (three) years;
2.1.9. services in energy efficiency - range of services, connected with measurement, the analysis and efficiency evaluation of energy consumption, and also application of measures for increase in energy efficiency;
2.1.10. marking of energy-requiring products - informing the consumer on the level of efficiency of energy use and other resources by means of energy marking;
2.1.11. the energy label - the document on amount of energy consumption of the equipment, the devices and devices consuming energy or influencing energy consumption;
2.1.12. system of power management - the permanent management system energy providing implementation of actions on energy efficiency;
2.1.13. power manager - the physical person responsible for energy efficiency meeting the requirements, the established body (organization) determined by relevant organ of the executive authority the having higher energy and technical education and length of service for the corresponding specialty at least 3 (three) years;
2.1.14. the smart counter - the modern measuring device which measures quantity and cost of the consumed energy eventually, providing delivery of the modern information and communication technologies this to suppliers and consumers with use;
2.1.15. cogeneration - simultaneous creation of electrical or mechanical energy with heat energy within single process;
2.1.16. the cogeneration device - the device capable to work in the cogeneration mode;
2.1.17. highly effective cogeneration installation - cogeneration installation which saves at least 10 percent of primary energy resource in comparison with separate production of heat and the electric power;
2.1.18. requirements to ecological design - requirements to product or its design for providing that impact indicators on the environment of product which consumes or influences energy consumption conformed to ecological requirements;
2.1.19. ecological design - integration of requirements of ecological design into design of the energy-requiring or influencing energy consumption product;
2.1.20. efficiency potential - amount of energy which can be saved as a result of application of measures for increase in energy efficiency, taking into account engineering feasibility and economic feasibility.
2.2. The other terms used in this Law have the values provided by the laws and other regulatory legal acts of the Azerbaijan Republic in the field of power.
3.1. The legislation of the Azerbaijan Republic in the field of rational use of energy resources and energy efficiency consists of the Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic, international treaties which participant is the Azerbaijan Republic, this Law, the laws, other regulatory legal acts of the Azerbaijan Republic governing the relations in the field of power and rational use of energy resources.
3.2. If international agreements which participant is the Azerbaijan Republic establish the rules other than this Law of rational use of energy resources and energy efficiency, these international agreements are applied.
3.3. The relations in the field of rational use of energy resources and energy efficiency in the free economic zone Alyat are regulated according to requirements of the Law of the Azerbaijan Republic "About the free economic zone Alyat".
4.1. Main objectives of state policy in the field of rational use of energy resources and increase in energy efficiency are:
4.1.1. ensuring reliability and safety of power system of the Azerbaijan Republic;
4.1.2. ensuring competitive economic development due to effective use of energy resources;
4.1.3. creation of the favorable circle which will serve rational use of energy resources, encouragement of investments into measures for increase in energy efficiency and highly effective technologies;
4.1.4. strengthening of cooperation between producers, transmitters, distributors, suppliers and energy consumers, and also state bodies (organizations) and local government bodies.
4.2. Tasks of the state in the field of rational use of energy resources and increase in energy efficiency consist in the following:
4.2.1. reduction of the regulatory base in this sphere in compliance with the advanced world practice;
4.2.2. implementation of mechanisms of stimulation and encouragement of energy efficiency, support of investments into energy-saving technologies and services;
4.2.3. education and informing energy consumers on benefits, economic, ecological and social benefits of implementation of measures for increase in energy efficiency;
