Policy
Passed in 2013
The National Energy Policy aims to provide the Bahamas with a modern, diversified and efficient energy sector, affordable energy supplies and long-term energy security towards enhancing international competitiveness and sustainable prosperity by 2030. The policy presents a long-term vision. It also suggests precise legal and administrative arrangements that should be undertaken to enable a low-carbon, resilient energy scenario.

The Policy mainly focuses on lowering the country's current dependency to imported oil thanks to an increased share of renewable electricity production and use, higher energy efficiency in buildings and to a move towards decarbonised transport. Programmes fostering information and education of households and businesses are detailed.
