From 28th to 29th March, at the International Palace of Congresses and Conferences in Ngolo (Bata), a seminar workshop is taking place on the Electrical Energy Law and the Regulations Applicable to Renewable Energy in Equatorial Guinea, aimed at all the key private sectors, ONGs and other interested parties in order to ensure and extend investment in the sector, through effective collaboration with the Ministry for Industry and Energy.
The Regional Delegate for Agriculture, Forests and the Environment, Diosdado Obiang Mbomio, in the name of the minister, oversaw the opening ceremony, and in his report indicated that the Government of Equatorial Guinea, after presenting in Paris in December 2015 the expected contributions on a national level, aims to reduce the increase in global warming to under 2�C, in relation to the pre-industrial period.
However, the ambition of Equatorial Guinea is to reduce by 20% its emissions by 2030, with respect to the 2010 levels, in order to achieve a reduction of 50% by 2050. To achieve this the measures for adaptation and reduction will be determined for various sectors based on the priority order with respect to emissions: energy, biomass, industrial processes, forestry, agriculture and change of use for land, transport, waste.
With regards to this activity, the aim is to study and analyse the draft Regulations Applicable to the Electricity Sector in Equatorial Guinea, and how to harmonise and validate the structure and contents of the Regulations Applicable to Renewable Energy with respect to the law regulating the sector.
