Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin Energy Policy for the North

1 November, 2021

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s strategy for an ambitious decarbonisation of the energy system in the North of Ireland which underpins the party’s ambition to lead a Just Transition to a net zero carbon society on the island of Ireland by at least 2050. Sinn Féin’s strategy is one of advancing social and economic justice side-by-side with climate justice, ensuring that the transition towards a carbon neutral society is accompanied by a reshaping of the economy to create a more democratic, equal, and sustainable society. This document lays out in broad terms Sinn Féin’s approach to beginning a just energy transition, that will create warmer homes, good green collar jobs, healthier and more efficient means of travel, cleaner and cheaper energy, and decent public transport for all.
