Government Agencies for Energy Efficiency in the Dominican Republic
Policy measure

ECLAC (2010) describes the main governmental agencies involved in energy efficiency in the Dominican Republic as the National Energy Commission (CNE) and the Electricity Superintendency. The legislative framework surrounding energy efficiency is the General Electricity Act from 2007 focusing on electricity, hydrocarbons, alternative energy sources and rational energy use. The law which established the CNE also provided it with the authority and means to regulate and create energy efficiency policies, standards and programmes, in addition to tax exemptions on fluorescent light bulbs, for example (ECLAC, 2010).
