LAW OF THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS

of July 15, 1998 No. 190-Z

About energy saving

(as amended on 31-12-2009)

Accepted by the House of Representatives on June 19, 1998

Approved by Council of the Republic on June 29, 1998

This Law governs the relations arising in the course of activities of legal entities and physical persons in the field of energy saving for the purpose of increase in efficiency of use of fuel and energy resources and the legal basis of these relations is established.

Article 1. Basic concepts

In this Law the following basic concepts are applied:

energy saving - the organizational, scientific, practical, information activities of state bodies, legal entities and physical persons directed to decrease in expense (losses) in fuel and energy resources in the course of their production, conversion, transportation, storage, production, use and utilization;

fuel and energy resources - set of all natural and transformed types of fuel and energy used in the republic;

secondary energy resources - the energy received during any engineering procedure as a result of underexploitation of primary energy or in the form of by-product of the main production and not applied in this engineering procedure;

effective use fuel and energy resursovispolzovaniye of all types of energy by economically justified, progressive methods in case of the existing level of development of the equipment and technologies and compliance with law;

rational use fuel and energy resursovdostizheniye of maximum efficiency of use of fuel and energy resources in case of the existing level of development of the equipment and technologies and compliance with law;

energy efficiency indicator - the evidence-based absolute or specific value of consumption of fuel and energy resources (taking into account their normative losses) on production of unit of production (works, services) of any appointment established by technical regulatory legal acts in the field of technical regulation and standardization;

nonconventional and renewable energy resources - the sources of electrical and heat energy using energy resources of the rivers, water storage basins and industrial drains, wind energy, the sun, the reduced natural gas, biomass (including wood waste), sewage and municipal solid waste;

users of fuel and energy resources are the subjects of managing irrespective of patterns of ownership registered in the territory of the Republic of Belarus as the legal entities or entrepreneurs performing the activities without formation of legal entity and also other persons who according to the legislation of the Republic of Belarus have the right to sign economic agreements, and the citizens using fuel and energy resources;

producers of fuel and energy resources are the subjects of managing irrespective of patterns of ownership registered in the territory of the Republic of Belarus as legal entities for whom any of types of the fuel and energy resources used in the republic is products.

Article 2. Legislation on energy saving

The legislation of the Republic of Belarus on energy saving consists of this Law and other acts of the legislation of the Republic of Belarus regulating questions of energy saving.

Article 3. Subjects of the relations in the field of energy saving

Subjects of the relations in the field of energy saving are legal entities and physical persons (users and producers of fuel and energy resources) performing the following types of activity:

production, conversion, transportation, storage, production, use and utilization of all types of fuel and energy resources;

production and delivery of the power generating and energy-requiring equipment, machines, mechanisms, materials, and also metering devices, control and regulation of expense of fuel and energy resources;

carrying out research, developmental, experienced and technology, expert, specialized, mounting, adjustment, repair and other work types (services) connected with increase in efficiency of use and economy of fuel and energy resources;

implementation of actions, connected with development and application nonconventional and renewable energy resources, use of secondary energy resources;

information support of legal entities and physical persons, training for the sphere of energy saving;

development and deployment of effective management systems energy saving and control facilities behind effective use of fuel and energy resources.

Article 4. International cooperation in the field of energy saving

The main directions of international cooperation in the field of energy saving are:

mutually advantageous exchange with the foreign and international organizations of energy efficient technologies;

participation of the Republic of Belarus in implementation of the international projects in the field of energy saving;

reduction of the indicators of energy efficiency provided by technical regulatory legal acts in the field of technical regulation and standardization in compliance with requirements of international standards.

Chapter 2. Bases of public administration by energy saving

Article 5. The basic principles of public administration in the field of energy saving

The basic principles of public administration in the field of energy saving are:

implementation of the state supervision of rational use of fuel and energy resources;

development of the state and interstate scientific and technical, republican, industry and regional programs of energy saving and their financing;

reduction of technical regulatory legal acts in the field of technical regulation and standardization in compliance with the requirement of decrease in power consumption of production of goods, service industry and life;

creation of system of the financial and economic mechanisms providing economic interest of producers and users in effective use of fuel and energy resources, involvement in fuel and energy balance nonconventional and renewable energy resources and also in investment of means into energy saving actions;

increase in level of self-sufficiency of the republic local fuel and energy resources;

implementation of state examination of energy efficiency of project decisions;

creation and wide circulation of environmentally friendly and safe energy technologies, ensuring state of environment, safe for the population, in the course of use of fuel and energy resources;

implementation of demonstration projects of outstanding energy performance;

information support of activities for energy saving and promotion of the best domestic and foreign practices in this area;
