|Policy Type:||Policy Support|
|Agency:||Irish Energy Centre|
The Green Paper on Sustainable Energy, published in September 1999, outlined a new and increased role for the Irish Energy Centre in implementing government policy on energy efficiency and renewable energy. This would involve the centre becoming an independent statutory body under the aegis of the Minister for Public Enterprise. A bill to effect this transition was approved by the government for formal drafting in July 2000. This legislation is a natural progression in the development of the centre which will ultimately become the primary implementing agency in the governments strategy on climate change and the promotion of energy efficiency and renewable energy measures. An interim board was appointed in December 2000 to oversee the centres transition.
