What we do
The role of the Energy Suppliers Group is for energy market stakeholders to discuss and advise on the progress of the Carbon Neutral Roadmap and our emissions reduction targets. The group has a particular focus on policies related to Jersey's current and future energy supply.
The secretariat function is provided by the Strategic Policy, Performance and Population department, and the Energy Suppliers Group has since replaced the disbanded Energy Forum according to the Ministerial Decision.
The group is chaired by the Minister for Energy and Climate Change. The Chair will present a 4 year review of the group to the States Assembly.
The Energy Suppliers Group will work with the Net Zero Network. The Net Zero Network is a network of local businesses and organisations supported by Government that aims to mobilise decarbonising actions across the Island. This is due to be launched in 2023.

Jersey Energy Partnership
The Jersey Energy Partnership was disbanded by the Ministerial Decision in 2023. The Jersey Energy Partnership monitored and reviewed energy plans as agreed by the States Assembly. It was made up of a Ministerial energy executive and a multi-stakeholder energy forum.
The energy executive group monitored actions outlined in the energy plan and involved Ministers from:
- economic development

The multi-stakeholder energy forum included representatives from the energy industry, businesses and the third sector. It provided the opportunity for key stakeholders to input on the progress of Pathway 2050, raise areas of concern and identify changing or future priorities.
