News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – “Bermuda has taken a significant step towards sustainable energy development with the introduction of the Electricity Amendment Act 2022 (Consequential Amendments) Regulations 2023,” said Minister of Home Affairs Walter Roban regarding the act, which went into effect on May 9th, 2023. “This Act paved the way for introducing the Electricity (Innovative Licence) Regulations 2023 which will help create Bermuda’s Energy Regulatory Sandbox.”
