Belize hosts Central American Commission on Environment and Development Forum on renewable energy

With Mexico about to host COP-16, the United Nations conference on climate change in Cancún, Quintana Roo from November 29 to December 10, Belize and Central America sought to finalize their position on renewable energy alternatives as the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent climate change.

The development of environmentally friendly methods of energy production received concentrated attention when Belize hosted the Central American Commission on Environment and Development  for a two-day forum at the Radisson Fort George Hotel.

The Central American representatives sought to develop regional strategies to combat the growing threat posed by climate change, and come up with a common position on the problem.

The partnership intends to support sustainable development on three fronts: economic, social and environmental. The delegates reviewed the use of solar energy,  wind and geothermal systems, bio fuels, and the efficient use of biomass.

Biomass technology uses fuels such as wood and sugar cane bagasse, which is already being employed in Belize by Belize Cogeneration Electricity Limited (BELCOGEN) at the Tower Hill Factory in Orange Walk.
