Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Fein Vision for Renewable Energy

15 November, 2022

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s renewable energy vision which aims to accelerate the transition to renewables while ensuring that our renewable resources are harnessed in a manner which maximises long-term social and economic benefits for Irish society. Our proposals aim to expedite the delivery of renewable energy projects and protect our energy security by better resourcing and streamlining our environmental planning system; to transition to a more ambitious, democratic and diverse renewable energy system while protecting energy affordability by reforming the PSO and expanding the role of general taxation in funding renewable supports and to transform our renewable resources into national wealth for all by expanding the proportion of state, community and domestic owned renewables.
