Clean, green electricity.
The Island needs to have a green and clean energy source, mostly from renewable sources. It's no good picking on the car, van and lorries, if the energy provider is not producing electricity from renewable sources. There should be a target set of say 75% renewable home produced energy by 2030. Thus will nean a combination of domestic and industrial solar panels, domestic and commercial onshore wind energy, EFW, offshore wind generation, tidal or current generation.
Why the contribution is important
The government, as the major shareholders in the JEC, needs to move towards green energy production. Nuclear should not be an option, as its pollutants last for many generations, and their effects can be far worse than carbon. The Islands requirements fir electricity will increase, as fossil fuel use decreases, and this gap and more should be replaced with home produced clean energy.
