It is aligned to the Vision 2020 and the NSDP and promotes development of environmentally cleaner renewable energy and increasing its share in the country's energy mix.

Energy access targets:
The country has set electricity access target at 40 % of the population by 2020, increasing from 5% in 2000.

Renewable energies are indicated as one of the tools to increase electrification rate in the country.  In order to attract investments in this sector the Renewable Energy Feed-In-Tariffs (REFIT) programme is planned to be developed.
