With Barbados making a push towards renewable energy as an alternative to costly and environmentally harmful fossil fuels, stakeholders are being encouraged to make their voices heard on proposed policies developed for the sector.
The Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC), in conjunction with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Energy Unit and the Barbados Renewable Energy Association (BREA), will tomorrow host a National Policy Dialogue on Sustainable Energy to raise awareness about the proposed policy options that were developed by the Caribbean Consultative Working Group (CCWG).
The national dialogue will focus on energy efficiency and energy conservation and how NGOs and CSOs can play a more strategic role in contributing to the development of policy and the implementation of practices, consistent with the United Nations declaration of Sustainable Energy For All (SE4ALL).
Members of the public are invited to attend this session to offer their input and gain further insight into the initiatives being conducted at the regional level through CARICOM, and domestically by BREA.
The dialogue will take place in the conference room at the Barbados Coalition of Service Industries, Building #3 Unit 2B, Harbour Industrial Estate from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
