This was one of the key outcomes of the meeting which was held on 19 April, 2018, at the CARICOM Secretariat in Georgetown, Guyana, according to Chairman of the Meeting, Senator the Hon. Darcy Boyce, Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister of Barbados.
He told the Communications Unit of the CARICOM Secretariat that the meeting made “good progress” on labelling of energy efficient equipment which would serve as a guide to the populace to buy more efficient appliances and equipment.
Resilience in electricity grids was discussed substantially, particularly in the context of the natural disasters that have been occurring in the Region, Minister Boyce said.
