Last chance to comment on fuel policy

The public consultation period on the draft National Fuels Sector Policy for Bermuda draws to a close on Friday, according to Grant Gibbons.

The consultation period was opened by the Department of Energy on June 15, with the public invited to submit responses to the draft document.

In a statement, Dr Gibbons said: “This week is the last opportunity for members of the public to share their thoughts before the policy is finalised. The department will review all information and respond to each submission before the policy progresses to legislation.”

The draft policy calls for the assessment of new fuels and technologies, while discussing issues including fuel security, public safety, fuel quality and fuel affordability.

The discussion paper can be found on the Government portal: https://www.gov.bm/sites/default/files/Draft-Final-National-Fuels-Policy-170525-1.pdf

Any written comments can be submitted to the Department of Energy before 5pm on Friday by e-mailing energy@gov.bm or by hand-delivering them to the offices in the Government Administration Building.
