TIRANA, Aug 14 (ATA)- The Ministry of Energy and Industry (MoEI) has come up with a draft law on “Energy efficiency” which includes energy conservation guides for all electricity consumers, including public administration, big companies and citizens. For the first time it foresees an Efficiency Fund.

According to sources from MEI, Albania has vowed to reduce by 11 percent the energy consumption until 2020 making enhancement of energy efficiency a top priority. Once the new bill comes into effect, the new rules will apply to public sector and big companies first. The measures will prevent excessive consumption ranging from banning household applies which do not save energy to construction of buildings with insulation materials.

As to the old apartment buildings and houses, the ministry will set up an Efficiency Fund, which will support their reconstruction up to 50 percent. By the new law, a special monitoring structure will be established to control its implementation.
