The Minister of Economic Development, Dr. the Hon. E. Grant Gibbons JP, MP, issued a reminder that the public consultation period on the draft National Fuels Sector Policy for Bermuda is coming to a close this week Friday.
The Minister noted: “This week is the last opportunity for members of the public to share their thoughts before the policy is finalized.
“The policy proposal is the culmination of four months of preliminary consultative work done by the Department of Energy with private sector and Government stakeholder groups.”
The draft Policy recommends the assessment of new fuels and technologies, discusses fuel security, public safety, fuel quality as well as ensuring that fuels are provided at the least cost.
The discussion paper can be found on the Government portal: https://www.gov.bm/sites/
The Minister stated: “The Department will review all information obtained and respond to each submission before the policy progresses to legislation.”
