Trinidad and Tobago is heavily dependent on its oil and gas sector to support its economy and society. However, given the challenge of climate change, small economies of scale, and increased economic, social and environmental vulnerability, strategies are needed to ensure long-term sustainable development. A key aspect to be considered is the greater potential for the implementation of energy efficiency measurements, which would allow for energy security in the long term, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increased revenue and cost savings.
In this report, the methodology of the Energy Efficiency Indicators Database (BIEE) is set out in chapter I and the background to energy efficiency in Trinidad and Tobago is discussed in chapter II. Trends in overall primary and final energy intensities are examined in chapter III. Lastly, chapters IV to VIII analyse the varying trends in energy and electricity consumption, as well as sectoral intensities.
