Sets out the approach to local energy in support of our strategic energy policy.

The energy system is in a period of transition, offering the opportunity for the people of Wales to take control of their own energy needs.  

Our vision is to see all communities and businesses using locally generated electricity and heat, from a range of renewable installations, to supply local demand and to minimise our dependence on central generation.  

By using our natural resources in the most effective and sustainable ways, we will:

  • create the local energy systems that Wales needs,
  • tackle poverty for the long term
  • put Wales at the forefront of carbon reduction.
