The ULP Administration will convene a major consultation on the national energy sector next Friday July 31st, at the Methodist Church Hall in Kingstown.

 

It is being coordinated by the Office of the Prime Minister, in conjunction with the Organisation of American States, the OAS.


The Consultation is part of the project “Increasing the Sustainability of the Energy Sector in the Caribbean through Improved Governance and Management”, which the OAS is carrying out in partnership with the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), the CARICOM Secretariat, and the Caribbean Energy Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC).


The project is also known as the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP).


According to Leonard Deane, the head of the Energy Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister, the consultation will bring together a number of multi-sector stakeholders, including government and civil society, to look at formulating an action plan towards the implementation of the National Energy Policy.


Deane says that this process is very important, to advance the long term sustainability of the energy sector in the state.


The official ceremony for the consultation will hear addresses from head of the local OAS office, Melene Glynn, Minister of Telecommunications, Jerold Thompson, and Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.


During the consultation, several top level speakers will address the audience on issues related to sustainable energy, energy project objectives in St.Vincent and the Grenadines and the Caricom Regional Energy policy.


A number of officials from sectors responsible for energy, finance and banking, government and agriculture are expected to attend the consultation.
