Future of Renewables in Northern Ireland

As part of the process in developing a new NI Energy Strategy the Department for the Economy contracted Cornwall Insight, in partnership with Ionic Consulting, to conduct research on renewable electricity and possible future policy in Northern Ireland.

The outcome of this research was originally published in July 2020 but some changes have since been made with regard to the Community Energy section. To view or download a revised version of the report click this link. Note: Section 8 specifically relates to Community Energy.
