The Bahamas signs the Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE)

Georgetown Guyana:-The Hon. Darren Henfield, Minister of Foreign Affairs, signed the CCREEE Agreement on behalf of the Government of The Bahamas 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). The Barbados-based CCREEE, when fully operational, 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.
