Energy Data Collection Internships
Deadline extended for applicants from the following countries: Antigua and Barbuda; Belize; Montserrat; St Kitts Nevis; St Lucia; St Vincent and the Grenadines; The Bahamas
The CCREEE is seeking motivated interns in each of the CARICOM territories to work in close collaboration with regional and national institutions to survey and collect energy-related data which will be used to update the Energy Report Cards (ERCs) for each territory. This is the third year of ERC data collection.
The interns will be based in their country of residence and, where possible, will work directly within the institution responsible for energy. The internship will provide students and/or young professionals with a unique opportunity to work with the energy sector institutions and stakeholders in their countries, gain practical experience in the energy sector and contribute to the knowledge management functions of the recently launched CARICOM Energy Knowledge Hub (CEKH).
The Energy Report Cards will also offer important support to the CCREEE work programme, including support to Member States’ energy planning and the development of sustainable energy projects.
