CARICOM Energy Week: Sirona Participating in Haiti’s Event

Haiti-Energy-Week-Logo-300x196Sirona has been invited back for another presentation in Haiti of our IEEE/Sirona Haiti Rural Electricity Program.  The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) is an organization of 15 Caribbean nations and dependencies. CARICOM’s main purposes are to promote economic integration and cooperation among its members, to ensure that the benefits of integration are equitably shared, and to coordinate foreign policy.  Renewable energy is one sector in which CARICOM works to support its member nations, and next week is CARICOM Energy Awareness Week.

Haiti is participating as are many other CARICOM member countries, with it’s own program entitled: Energy: Cornerstone of Haiti’s Reconstruction.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, after participating in the strategic planning process of the Haitian energy sector I am excited by Haiti’s committment to exploration and implementation of alternative energy solutions.

If you happen to be in Haiti, I will be at the event Monday-Wednesday in Tabarre at the Parc Historique de la Canne a Sucre which is across from the American Embassy.  On Tuesday at 11:15 I am scheduled to speak about our innovative Sunblazer program which brings both energy and economic development to communities unreached by Haiti’s grid.  We are borrowing our Sunblazer unit from St. Etienne for display.  The event will be attended by government officials, the media and the general public.

We are receiving very positive attention in Haiti and I am very excited about next year.
