Renewable energy and carbon capture

Renewable energy consumption, policy and general regulation

Give details of the production and consumption of renewable energy in your country. What is the policy on renewable energy? Describe any obligations on the state and private parties for renewable energy production or use. Describe the main provisions of any scheme for registration of renewable energy production and use and for trade of related accounting units or credits.

Law 57-07 on Incentives for Renewable Energy and their Special Regimes, dated 7 May 2007, regulates the concessions for alternative energies in the Dominican Republic and grants fiscal incentives for the promotion and development of wind and solar projects, among others.

Law 64-00 and its regulations regulate the environmental legal compliance of renewable energy projects and requires the obtainment of an environmental authorisation, which requires the preparation of environmental studies to determine the impacts that the project will have in its construction and operation phases. The terms of reference that the Ministry of the Environment will issue for each project will be adapted to the proposed operations.
