ICLEI Case Study - 122 Belo Horizonte's steps towards a new solar energy legislation
The experience of Belo Horizonte – Minas Gerais (MG) in drafting laws on the use of solar heaters and
its participation in the Sustainable Construction Policies (PoliCS) project demonstrates the role of local
governments in promoting renewable energies and sustainable policies. They hold a unique set of
regulatory and administrative tools. The creation of sustainable municipal model-programs under the
direction of ICLEI is an excellent way of setting an example, involving all stakeholders and replicating
successful experiences in other localities.
