CARICOM Energy Ministers Meet
CARICOM Ministers with responsibility for energy will meet on 30 September 2020 for a special meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED).
High on the agenda of the Meeting are discussions on operational and strategic matters that relate to the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE). CCREE is the only Community Institution with an exclusive energy mandate, and is the implementation hub for the CARICOM Energy Policy.
Ministers will pay special attention to the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Roadmap and Strategy (C-SERMS) including consideration towards energy sector resilience and planning.
There will also be a special strategic session which will look at achieving regional energy security through enhanced cooperation and integration. Discussions in this session will include how the region will pragmatically approach energy integration, and regional cooperation on deepwater exploration and production of oil, gas and marine renewable energy.
Energy officials met earlier in September in preparation for Wednesday’s Ministerial Meeting.
