As part of the development of a new ‘White Paper’ a consultation on future energy policy will be held in Sligo on Friday 28th November.
This is one of the series of 3 regional consultations which are being hosted by the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources and Irish Rural Link. The first was held in Moate on 21st November and the final regional consultation will be held in Cork on 12th December. Six other consultations on different aspect of energy policy have also been taking place in Dublin.
The Western Development Commission is a joint host of the Sligo consultation. Having provided a western perspective on a variety of energy issues (including natural gas and electricity infrastructure, community wind energy and bioenergy) the WDC welcomes this opportunity to participate in and host the consultation so that people in the Western Region have the chance to express their views about energy policy for the future.
