We want to reduce CO2 emissions in Wales. We are looking to produce more of our energy from renewable and low carbon energy sources.
Renewable technologies use the energy of wind, tides, waves, plant material, vegetation, or farming waste as a fuel or energy source.
Our energy policy, Energy Wales: A Low Carbon Transition, sets out how Wales will move from fossil fuel based energy generation to utilise a wider mix of energy sources, which are mainly renewable or low in carbon.
UK and EU policies
We don’t have responsibility for all areas of renewable energy policies and consents.
The Department for Energy and Climate Change (external link) in the UK Government have responsibility for major national energy infrastructure projects. This includes power stations, onshore and offshore renewables and overhead power lines.
We also take part in some renewable energy networks and European Union (EU) projects.
