The project entitled “Sustainable Energy in the Caribbean: Reducing the Carbon Footprint in the Caribbean through the Promotion of Energy Efficiency (EE) and the Use of Renewable Energy (RE) Technologies” seeks to strengthen the capacity of Caribbean countries in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable energy. The high-level meeting in Port of Spain will be jointly convened by ECLAC Caribbean and GIZ to assess the impact of this project, implemented from 1 July 2014 to 30 September 2016.

Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago - 8 Sep 2016


The project is a German Cooperation funded initiative which was implemented by ECLAC over the period October, 2014 to September, 2016.  The overall objective of the project is to enhance the capacity of Caribbean countries to access and utilize new concepts, strategies and mechanisms for the formulation of projects in energy efficiency and renewable energy. Specifically, the project sought to support the identification and articulation of mechanisms for financing energy efficiency measures and renewable energy technologies so as to increase investment in these initiatives in three Caribbean countries.  These countries were: Dominica, Saint Lucia, and Martinique.  The project also aimed to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy policies and strategies, and to engage regional agencies in advancing sustainable energy policy in the Caribbean.  This report presents the results of project activities undertaken, as well as lessons learnt from project implementation.  It also assesses the impact of project outcomes on the evolution of EE and RE policy in the region.
