All Island Energy Policy Report
This report, produced in collaboration with the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Northern Ireland, calls on policymakers across the island and the UK to develop and pursue a more coordinated and ambitious effort to transition to net zero. According to the report, this transition should be underpinned by a new phase in energy collaboration and investment in shared infrastructure, including a recommitment to the Single Electricity Market.
The report highlights that the shift to net-zero offers a significant chance to enhance competitiveness, boost energy resilience, make energy more affordable, and generate sustainable jobs. However, challenges such as regulatory uncertainty, planning delays, skills shortages, supply chain constraints, and emerging energy security risks are impeding progress toward climate goals.
