Description:DCENR requests views from stakeholders on six priority areas - the closing date for submissions is 31 July 2014. These priority areas include empowering energy citizens, markets & regulation, planning and implementing essential energy infrastructure, ensuring a balanced & secure energy mix, putting the energy system on a sustainable pathway and driving economic opportunity. The paper includes 47 questions across the six priority areas.
Implication(s):The paper notes the delicate balance required in framing energy policy: Ireland is dependent on imported fossil fuels and has little influence to control the price of these fuels or their environmental implications. DCENR is seeking views that ensure security of supply, competitiveness, sustainability are maintained, and also aspires to frame policy that leads to job creation. These responses will be considered in devising the white paper which is expected at the end of 2014.
Current Position:Ibec's Energy Policy Committee developed Ibec's position. The White Paper is due for publication in mid-2015.
