Energy Policy: Managing the Energy Transition

Share this page

The Energy Team are reviewing the current Energy Resource Plan which was published in 2011, with a view to bringing a new energy policy to the States of Guernsey in 2019. It is important that we review and update our energy policy as this will ensure that Guernsey remains up to date with the global decarbonisation trends, regulations, technologies, and industry practices. This update will guarantee that Energy Policy remains consistent and effective into the future allowing for long-term planning and investment by government, energy providers, and individuals.

The team will be engaging with different stakeholders across the island and energy markets.  This discovery and engagement will be a chance for energy providers, industry experts, and members of the public to discuss their views of the current energy market, their thoughts on what the future will look like, and what they see as their - and Government's - role going forward.

If you are interested in taking part in the conversation you can fill out an online survey which can be found here or email your views and feedback to energy@gov.gg.

  • Discovery & Engagement

    • The energy team will be hosting a series of innovative engagement events to discover insights and develop future energy policy.

  • October Energy Workshops

    • We recently held a two-day workshop with different representatives from across the energy market. A pre-questionnaire was sent out to all attendees to respond to and each group took part in an individual 30minute session with officers and members of the Committee for Environment & Infrastructure to present their feedback and to answer any questions raised. A copy of attendees and the pre-submission headings can be found below.

  • Energy Forum

    • We invited the energy representatives who attended the workshop to join an Energy Forum. This Forum met for the first time on 22nd November to discuss the feedback that came out of the workshops. 
    • We want to keep the conversation going during the discovery phase of this policy project. The Forum will provide the space and time to engage with wider businesses and different stakeholder groups as we define and develop new Energy Policy.
    • Dates of forums:
      • 22 November 2018 - Industry Representatives and Workshop feedback.
