The Green Paper on Energy Policy in Ireland was launched on 12 May 2014, it commenced a public consultation process on the future of energy policy in Ireland for the medium to long-term. The purpose of the consultation was to invite interested parties to tease out the most important points highlighted, express any other views and identify policy points for consideration.
The consultation concluded on 31 July 2014 and we received 1,200 submissions.
There are six Energy Policy Priorities which frame the discussion for the Energy Green Paper. We held a number of seminars in Dublin and Regionally to understand stakeholder views on each priority. The seminars ensured that local, rural and regional interests were represented and provided with an opportunity to express their views on all aspects of Irish energy policy.
