Debate: How do we achieve a low carbon energy system for Wales?

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Notes the 2017 Energy Generation in Wales Report, published on 13 November 2018.

2. Notes that, in order to deliver the 80 per cent carbon emissions reduction target in the Environment (Wales) Act 2016, there is an urgent need to decarbonise the energy system in Wales by:

a) taking forward regional, whole energy system planning to support a low carbon economy;

b) recognising the potential for a range of energy generation technologies, and the need for smart solutions to balance energy generation with demand;

c) accelerating deployment of low carbon energy development, where it provides benefit to Wales, recognising the current difficult investment climate; and

d) further developing the grid in Wales as part of place based plans.
