Government of Jamaica’s Progress Towards Vision 2030 NDP Outcome No. 10: Diversification of Energy Supply & Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No. 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
Jamaica’s energy management framework and Jamaica’s National Energy Policy seeks to support the implementation of Vision 2030 Jamaica National Development Plan (NDP) and in particular, National Outcome # 10 – Energy Security and Efficiency. The vision for Jamaica’s energy sector is “a modern, efficient, diversified and environmentally sustainable energy sector providing affordable and accessible energy supplies with long-term energy security and supported by informed public behaviour on energy issues and an appropriate policy, regulatory and institutional framework”.
In a context where the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology (MSET) has overall responsibility for developing and overseeing Jamaica’s energy policies, collaboration with other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) is critical to achieving Jamaica’s overall energy objective.
