REMINDER: Deadline for Feedback on National Fuels Policy – Friday July 7th 5pm
The Department of Energy within the Ministry of Economic Development is inviting public commentary on their consultation document - The National Fuels Sector Policy for Bermuda.
The document can be found on the Government portal or in hard copy from the Department of Energy at the Government Administration Building, 3rd floor, 30 Parliament Street.
The Department of Energy is working with stakeholders to develop new policies for the fuels industry, including assessing new fuels and technologies, ensuring fuel security, ensuring public safety, fuel quality as well as ensuring that fuels are at least cost.
Written comments on the policy document will be welcomed until close of business 7 July 2017, submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by hand at the Department of Energy, Government Administration Building, 3rd floor, 30 Parliament Street.
The Department will review all information obtained and respond to each submission.
Department of Energy Director, Jeane Nikolai, said, “Fuels is another essential pillar of the Energy Sector which directly affects the local community and economy. The New Fuels Sector Policy will mark the beginning of Bermuda’s road toward a fiscally transparent, efficient and environmentally sensitive fuel regime.”
The policy proposal is the culmination of months of preliminary consultative work done by the Department of Energy with private sector and Government stakeholder groups.
Interested parties are encouraged to read and comment on the draft policy by the 7 July deadline.
