About use of energy resources
This Law determines legal, economic and social basis of state policy in the field of use of energy resources, and also the main directions of the mechanism of its implementation, governs the relations arising in this area between the state and legal entities and physical persons.
In this Law the following basic concepts are used:

Energy saving policy - the state policy performed by legal, organizational and financial and economic regulation of production processes (production), conversion, transformation, transportation, storage, accounting and consumption of energy resources for the purpose of their rational use and economical expenditure.
Rational use of energy resources - achievement of maximum efficiency of use of energy resources in case of the existing level of development of the equipment and technology, on condition of decrease in technogenic environmental impact.
Standard rates of consumption energy the resursovreglamentirovanny size of expense of energy resources for this production, products, work, service.
Renewable energy resources - the power sources which are constantly existing or periodically appearing in the environment (energy of the sun, wind, flows of heat of the earth, energy of biomass, the seas, flows of waters, etc.).
The legislation of the Azerbaijan Republic on use of energy resources consists of this Law and other regulatory legal acts, and also international treaties of the Azerbaijan Republic accepted according to it.
State policy in the field of use of energy resources is based on the following principles:
implementation of state regulation of activities of legal entities and physical persons in the field of energy saving by application of economic and administrative measures;
priority of requirements of energy saving, use of mechanisms of economic and legal stimulation when implementing the activities connected with production (production), conversion, transportation, storage and use of energy resources;
establishment and application of progressive regulations of use of energy resources;
implementation of the state nadvedomstvenny supervision of use of energy resources by the companies and organizations;
regulation and standardization in the field of energy saving and effective use of energy resources, obligation of observance of standards and standard rates of power;
combination of interests of producers (getters), transporters and consumers of energy resources;
obligation of accounting by the companies and organizations, irrespective of pattern of ownership, energy resources spent by them;
obligation of energy examination of construction and reconstruction of objects;
application of economic sanctions for irrational use of energy resources;
promoting of economic, ecological and social benefits of energy saving;
implementation of interstate cooperation in the problem resolution of energy saving of the republic;
creation and application of new energy-saving technologies.
Objects of legal regulation of this Law are the relations connected with production and use of energy resources, implementation of research and design developments, information support in this area and also management and control of use of energy resources. Due to use of energy resources it is necessary to prepare the document on environmental impact assessment (EIA) on the types of activity provided by the Law of the Azerbaijan Republic "About environmental impact assessment" and to carry out the state environmental assessment of this document.
Subjects of legal regulation of the relations connected with use of energy resources are legal entities and physical persons of the Azerbaijan Republic, foreign legal entities and physical persons, foreigners, and also the stateless persons acting in the Azerbaijan Republic.
For carrying out purposeful activities of the state for the organization and coordination of actions in the field of effective use of energy resources nation-wide, local and other programs are developed and adopted.

The procedure and conditions of development of state programs on effective use of energy resources is determined by relevant organ of the executive authority of the Azerbaijan Republic.
The state provides conditions for carrying out systematic complex researches in the field of energy saving for the purpose of creation of scientific bases of new energy saving processes and technologies, development of highly effective devices and the equipment, rational use of energy resources.
State regulation in the field of use of energy resources is performed in the following main directions:
adoption of the concept of energy policy of the state, state programs in the field of use of energy resources, corresponding regulatory legal acts;
implementation of integrated management in the field of energy saving, carrying out investment and single scientific and technical policy on issues of energy saving, coordination of activities of the ministries, companies, concerns, companies, organizations and organizations in this area;
the organization of regulation, standardization, certification, metrology, the statistical recording in the field of use of energy resources;
state examination on production and use of energy resources;
regulation of expense of energy resources;

forming and use of the corresponding mechanism of financial and economic stimulation of energy saving;
education and determination of procedure for use of fund of rational energy consumption;
