Renewable Energy Section meeting


GRTU this week organized an ad hoc  section meeting for
its members in the Renewable Energy Sector due a number of problems the section
was going through. The meeting was addressed by GRTU President Paul Abela, RES
Section President Noel Gauci and GRTU CEO Abigail Psaila Mamo.

Once again the issue of slow down when no Government
schemes are open was raised. Due to poor planning of when the schemes are
opened this sector experiences sudden increase and decrease in work. When
schemes stop no sales are made till another scheme opens which from a consumer
point of view is very reasonable but they have a large number of employees,
needed for the sudden surge in business created by the scheme, which would be
idle for months on end. The sector is currently in this situation. They know
that by August all the installations would have been completed and there is no
scheme on the horizon. GRTU has made the Government aware of this and is
currently in discussions to ensure that the panning of the schemes takes this
issue into consideration.

Another issue in relation to the Malta Industrial
Parks Expression of Interest was also discussed. The EOI has a number of
important elements that remain unclear and GRTU is seeking to clarify these in
order to give the local operators an opportunity to participate in this EOI.
