The enterprise committee met on 19 November 2009 to discuss the Draft Caravans Bill and sustainable electricity.
Ulster Unionist MLA John McCallister briefed the enterprise committee on the Draft Caravans Bill, which seeks to regulate the relationship and responsibilities between caravan owners and those who run caravan parks.
Malachy McKernan and Olivia Martin, of the enterprise department, discussed the latest developments for the Northern Ireland Renewable Obligation (NIRO), which aims to support and develop sustainable electricity.
On the question of feed-in tariffs for individuals producing electricity on a small scale, the witnesses said there was a question over the cost efficiency of the feed-in tariff model and that it was important not to deter investors in Northern Ireland's electricity market.
However, that decision is pending the department's report on the matter, due in January 2010.
