Details of actions to be taken forward during 2022 by central government and partners under the new Energy Strategy

The Department for the Economy has launched an Action Plan for 2022 following the publication in December 2021 of Northern Ireland's new Energy Strategy - The Path to Net Zero Energy.

The Energy Strategy outlined a roadmap to deliver a 56 per cent reduction in Northern Ireland's energy-related emissions by 2030 and a pathway to deliver the 2050 vision of net zero carbon and affordable energy.

The 22-point Action Plan outlines some of the main actions to be taken forward during 2022 by central government and partners. It also includes a suite of new initiatives, such as:

  • a £10 million green innovation fund
  • a hydrogen centre of excellence
  • a one-stop shop for energy advice
