Portugal’s Directorate-General of Energy and Geology (DGEG) is a public administration body responsible for designing, implementing and evaluating policies on energy and geological resources.
DGEG’s focus includes operational work, such as energy statistics, regulatory measures, licencing of installations, policy implementation, and policy monitoring. It also has responsibility for strategic energy and geology planning as part of, for example, national plans for security of supply (electricity and natural gas), energy efficiency, renewable energy and the national energy-climate plan 2030 (NECP).
The DGEG R&D team has been collaborating for more than 25 years with universities, public laboratories and other research centres on sustainable development, climate change adaptation and mitigation, fossil and renewable fuels, CCS, renewable thermal and electrical energy, design for strategic innovation and life cycle assessment.
