The secondary regulation of the Energy Transition Law (Reglamento de la Ley de Transición Energética) is the final legal instrument to complete the energy reform in terms of energy transition. The secondary regulation was published on May 04th, 2017 and specified in more detail those obligations that are stated in the Energy Transition Law.

High Energy Consumers:

This legal instrument defined as a high energy consumer (UPAC) all the companies or individuals with electricity consumption exceeding 45 GWh per year or those that fuel consumption is above 10,000 boe (barrels of oil equivalent). However, Conuee should publish the official parameters required from UPACs as this information has to be submitted on annual basis to the SITE by the end of November 2017.

Effectiveness Evaluatoins:

Another relevant regulation with regards to energy efficiency standards is the regulation that sets the development of standard effectiveness studies every 3-years in addition to the five-year review established in the Federal Law on Metrology and Standardization (LFMN). This evaluation would include the effectiveness of programmes related to the dissemination of information and energy efficiency labelling. Based on the conclusions of these studies, CONUEE should make the necessary modifications to improve its effectiveness and impact among consumers.

Likewise, SENER will perform evaluation studies every year for each planning instrument under Energy Transition Law with the support of the National Institute of Electricity and Clean Energies (INEEL). The studies will be quantitative and qualitative impact evaluation. The results will be used to identify possible barriers to the goal’s fulfilment and possible improvements, as well as incorporate additional policies, programmes, actions or projects.

Energy Efficiency Excellence Award:

The secondary regulation of the Energy Transition Law indicates that Sener with technical assistance from Conuee will publish the criteria and standards of qualification for granting the award or recognition of energy efficiency excellence of products, equipment and buildings. In addition, it describes that anyone interested in the recognition ought to accredit the sustainable and efficient use of energy of their product, equipment or building that want to certify. By the moment, it is not clear who will do those accreditations.

Voluntary Agreements:

The secondary regulation of the Energy Transition Law indicates that Sener with technical assistance from Conuee will publish the criteria and standards of qualification for granting the award or recognition of energy efficiency excellence of products, equipment and buildings. In addition, it describes that anyone interested in the recognition ought to accredit the sustainable and efficient use of energy of their product, equipment or building that want to certify. By the moment, it is not clear who will do those accreditations.
