The Hon. Darren Henfield, Minister of Foreign Affairs of The Bahamas, signed the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) Agreement on behalf of the Government of The Bahamas. He signed the agreement within the margins of the 41st Community Council of Ministers held at the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat in Georgetown, Guyana on Monday, 15 January, 2018.
The Agreement which was opened for signature at the Thirty Eighth Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM in Grenada in July 2017, established the CCREEE which is intended to function as the implementation hub for the CARICOM Energy Policy, as well as the Caribbean Sustainable Roadmap and Strategy (C-SERMS).
When fully operational, the Barbados-based CCREEE,is expected to improve the quantity and quality of programmes and projects in sustainable energy within the Region. Energy plays a critical part in supporting the sustainable development of Caribbean countries and the CCREEE, an action-oriented institution, will lead to improvements in sustainable energy production, delivery and use, through increased renewable energy applications and energy efficiency measures.
