Caribbean Energy Statistics and Information Conference
CARICOM Member States are making good progress in the adoption of energy efficiency applications and renewable energy technologies, however, there is a need to ensure that decisions and planning are supported by fact based scenarios and information. The availability of energy data, statistics and information, that is of the requisite quantity and quality, has been identified as critical for decision-making on the policies, regulations and investments that are necessary for meeting the C SERMS objectives and targets.
The absence of data has been highlighted as one of the major challenges for public and private institutions to provide decision-support that is based on empiricism, which effectively erodes the confidence and effectiveness in energy planning, in general, and renewable energy integration, in particular, within the region. To address this, the CARICOM Secretariat and the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in collaboration with development partners have developed a Programme of Work for the enhancement of energy data, statistics and information within the Region.
The Caribbean Energy Statistics and Information Conference taking place March 21st – 23rd 2022, will feature the launch of CARICOM Energy Information System (eisCARICOM) and CARICOM Energy Knowledge Hub (CEKH) Data Portal with R3EAD Application, trainings and presentations on energy statistics and gender in the energy space.
The event’s launch will be live streamed on our social media platforms on Monday March 21st 2022 at 9:00am. The remainder of the conference is by invitation only.
