The National Directorate of New and Renewable Energy is in charge of framing policies to stimulate the use of renewables in the country's energy mix.

The country adopted the Strategy for New and Renewable Energy Development (PNENR) 2011-2025 in 2011, with the aim of developing renewables for electricity generation. The PNENR determined targets for renewables, including a doubling of the hydropower capacity (to over 4 GW) and the elaboration of potential studies for marine and geothermal energy.
