    ‘We are looking at more possibilities for renewable energy’ – Miriam Dalli

    May 17, 2022 - The Malta Independent


      Energy Minister Miriam Dalli said Tuesday that the government is looking for more possibilities of renewable energy, particularly looking to invest in offshore renewable energy.

      Answering journalists' questions about the government’s vision for new renewable energy farms, Dalli said that the finance ministry is taking care of exclusive economic zones to find potential areas for renewable energy farms, this being offshore areas at sea.

      In March, Dalli had told a Chamber of Commerce debate that Malta will generate a minimum 50 Megawatts from offshore wind farms or 65 MW from offshore solar plants by 2030. Dalli had emphasised Malta’s energy policy would be anchored in renewable energy, with various studies on offshore windfarms in Malta having already been carried out.

      “The reality is that the technology which makes sense for our country is the floating offshore renewable energy farms, which, despite being considerably more expensive, the government is conscious of that fact and is working towards preparing towards reaching our potential for renewable energy,” Dalli said.

      The energy minister had said before that Malta will be able to diversify its energy mix, buying electricity from LNG imports of Electrogas, who own the Delimara gas plant.

      Dalli said that the government will invest more in solar panels, however it will look towards other possibilities for renewable energy for Malta to be able to use its renewable resources as much as possible.
