Vision 2050: Options for a New Northern Ireland Strategic Energy Framework
Chambre Public Affairs
The energy sector on the island of Ireland and beyond faces immense challenges. Climate change has resulted in a need to rapidly decarbonise. Meanwhile, new technologies like electric cars, carbon capture and smart grids are emerging that promise to bring great benefits – if we make sweeping changes to accommodate them.
The sector therefore sits on the cusp of a transformation. But without a policy framework to guide this transformation, it will be difficult for organisations to know what they should invest in. To that end the Department for the Economy is working to develop a new Strategic Energy Framework for Northern Ireland.
On 11 September 2019, Policy Eye events, in association with Cleaver Fulton Rankin solicitors, will host a landmark seminar on the Department’s draft Framework. Timed to coincide with the hotly-anticipated Departmental green paper, it promises a unique opportunity to inform government thinking. The event will be chaired by Jamie Delargy and held in the impressive surroundings of Titanic Belfast
We hope you’ll take this opportunity to attend and share your perspective on the future of energy in Northern Ireland.
