Energy Minister, Fayval Williams, says the government is to reconvene
the Jamaica Energy Council, to ensure collaborative discussions on
issues in the energy sector.

Former Energy Minister and now Opposition Spokesman on Energy Phillip
Paulwell, has been urging the government to resume  meetings of the
Energy Council which he says has been dormant for some time.

Mrs Williams says her Ministry is moving to develop new energy
policies and legislation.

She says one billion dollars has been set aside in the budget, to
continue to ensure that public facilities are energy efficient.

Mrs Williams says the energy policies will also take into account the
nation’s growth projections.

And Minister Williams says there are also plans to further reduce the
nation’s carbon emissions.
