CARICOM Energy Month begins today
CARICOM Energy Month begins today. The Month is being observed under the theme ‘Clean Energy, Good Governance and Regulations: Generating Growth and Resilience‘ and will officially be launched on 2 November in Brades, Montserrat.
The Month is a celebration of the significant strides that have been made within the CARICOM Region in its transition to a sustainable energy pathway.The Month of activities evolved from CARICOM Energy Week (CEW) which was established in 2011 following a mandate from Caribbean Energy Ministers. Since its inauguration in 2016, CEM has become the seminal event on the calendar of energy stakeholders including academia, policy-makers, the private sector, youth, and development partners.
In addition to regional activities, CARICOM Member States also have planned events in observance of the Month.
