The Regulator for Energy and Water Services (REWS) together with the Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Enterprise (MEEE) has recently launched a bid for private entrepreneurs to invest in the development of large renewable energy projects such as solar farms and wind turbines.
As a follow-up to consultation talks and feedback obtained from major stakeholders, the Government will offer financial support for private investors to generate clean energy through these developments. Through this scheme, the Government will invest up to a maximum of seventy-four million Euro (€74M) over a period of twenty years. This investment will, in turn, translate into the creation of more green jobs, and complements the islands’ vision for a de-carbonised economy by 2050.
