Energy Desk Releases the Draft National Energy Policy – Stakeholder Feedback Invited

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement during the recently concluded budget debate in the Lower House, the Energy Desk has released the draft National Energy Policy. The document was prepared by the Office of the Prime Minister and the National Energy Task Force with the support from the CARICOM Energy Programme, the Department of Sustainable Development of the Organization of American States (OAS) and the consultant firm German ProfEC GmbH. The technical and policy assistance was offered as part of the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP) funded by the European Commission.

Ambassador Joan Underwood who has responsibility for the Energy Desk has indicated that the decision to circulate the policy in draft form is designed to give stakeholders in both the public and private sectors the opportunity to provide written feedback on the document. In keeping with a commitment made by the Honourable Prime Minister during the budget debate, copies of the draft policy are also being issued to all Members of Parliament. The deadline for the submission of such feedback is February 4th.

Following the expiration of the deadline for receiving written feedback, the Energy Desk will collaborate with the OAS Department of Sustainable Development to stage a national consultation where the revised draft will be presented and comments invited from the general public. Following that consultation, the policy will be presented to Cabinet for approval.

Interested persons can download the draft National Energy Policy from the government website www.ab.gov.ag or from CIPORE at
