Northern Ireland Energy Strategy Action Plan – Roundtable ‘Replacing Fossil Fuels with Renewable Energy’

Cleaver Fulton Rankin, in partnership with Chambre Public Affairs, is involved in a series of energy roundtable events to discuss progress on each of the 5 key areas of the Northern Ireland Energy Strategy launched in December 2021, and the Action Plan for implementation of the Energy Strategy.

The first roundtable took place on 10 November 2023, held in partnership with Chambre Public Affairs and the Electricity Association of Ireland, and chaired by energy industry commentator and Journalist, Jamie Delargy. Cleaver Fulton Rankin’s Energy & Renewables team contributed to the discussions, led by Director, Stephen Cross. Leaders from across the renewable energy sector, including representatives from prominent energy suppliers, industry associations, the Department for the Economy and the Utility Regulator attended.

The Discussion Report, following the roundtable, examines the Energy Strategy objective of ‘Replacing Fossil Fuels with Renewable Energy’, and summarises the progress and challenges in its implementation. The aim of the discussion report is to raise awareness and inform all sections of the industry and government on the steps to be taken to help achieve the objectives of the Energy Strategy and the goals of the Climate Change Act (NI).

Stephen Cross, Director and Head of Energy & Renewables at Cleaver Fulton Rankin, commented: “The Roundtable Discussion and Report centres around addressing the challenges ahead as we set to achieve the Energy Strategy’s key objectives.  

I would like to thank Chambre Public Affairs, the Electricity Association of Ireland and our Roundtable participants for raising important questions surrounding the Energy Strategy for Northern Ireland. We hope that the discussion report encourages wider discussions and action concerning renewable energy.  

We were very keen to gather a cross-section of key individuals for this important discussion, and hope that it can inform policy makers and government, especially in the context of the Assembly resuming business.”
