This consultation builds on the evidence received and the key issues identified through the Call for Evidence process. Five working groups covering energy efficiency, heat, power, transport and consumers were established to review the Call for Evidence responses, contribute additional evidence and help to identify and shortlist potential policy options. An expert panel was also established to provide external insight and challenge to the development of this consultation.

Your input is vital to help shape the policies that are contained in it. You can access the Policy Options Consultation Paper here: Consultation on policy options for the new Energy Strategy for Northern Ireland | Department for the Economy (
