Jeremy Thompson is to be the new Chairman of the Renewable Energy Team (RET), which is a part of the States of Guernsey‘s Commerce and Employment Department.

Jeremy Thompson has been involved in RET (and predecessor groups) from the outset in 2008.

He has gained significant expertise in renewable technologies, the opportunities for Guernsey, and the challenges which the industry faces.

Mr. Thompson is involved in a number of other ventures in Guernsey and has significant commercial experience which will be of significant use to the Renewable Energy Team.

He is joined by new political members, Deputy Al Brouard, Deputy Minister for Guernsey’s Commerce and Employment Department; and Deputy David de Lisle, Department of Commerce and Employment board member.

They will complement the rest of the group which is made up of independent advisors and Guernsey civil servants.

RET has significant expertise built over many years. The new members will be able to offer a fresh perspective.

RET has the responsibility of progressing local macro renewable energy with specific emphasis on offshore wind, tidal and wave energy.

Information on the progress RET has made, and plans for the future, are available on the Guernsey Renewable Energy website.
