The Conference is a two-day joint EU-CARICOM/CARIFORUM initiative designed to foster partnerships between the EU, the Caribbean, development partners and the private sector. The event is expected to unfold the potential of the Caribbean region and leverage investment towards achieving the region’s ambitious renewable energy goals.

The event aims to:

  • promote a conducive regulatory and institutional environment for sustainable energy in the Caribbean;
  • Bring together the EU, Caribbean countries, donors and the private sector to identify the opportunities for increased cooperation including business opportunities;
  • Identify financial mechanisms for investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency;
  • Showcase renewable energy experiences, services and technologies from island experiences in both Caribbean and EU.

By bringing together key figures in the development and energy field such as EU Commissioner Neven Mimica, SG of CARIFORUM Irwin LaRoque, PM of Barbados Stuart Freudel, DG of IRENA Adnan Amin, this event will be the ‘launch pad’ for a solid, long-term cooperation between the Caribbean and the EU in the sustainable energy arena.

Registrations are now open and limited to the first 200 participants.
