Consultation on Policy Proposals for an Energy Bill
The Northern Ireland Executive’s strategic aim is for a more sustainable energy system in which energy is used as efficiently as possible; where much more of our energy is from renewable sources; and where energy is as competitively priced as possible. The Executive’s Strategic Energy Framework (SEF) envisions Northern Ireland’s energy future over years to 2020 with the key energy goals of building competitive markets, ensuring security of supply, enhancing sustainability and developing our energy infrastructure.
In order to pursue these goals, and aid delivery of the SEF, DETI proposes to ask the Northern Ireland Assembly to make new primary legislation, to allow for greater powers for sustainable energy and additional regulatory measures relating to natural gas and electricity.
Representations or objections with respect to the statutory policy consultation may be made by 14 September 2012 to Sustainable Energy Branch, Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment, Netherleigh, Massey Avenue, Belfast BT4 2JP or by email to email@example.com.
