Today, June 27, 2011 Charge d’affaires, Mr. Christopher Sandrolini had a courtesy visit with Mrs. Marsha Atherley-Ikechi of the Barbados Fair Trading Commission. Mrs. Atherley-Ikechi will be participating in a renewable energy internship as part of the USAID/ National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) Clean Energy Series. The Clean Energy Series is made possible through a cooperative agreement with NARUC and USAID Economic Growth, Agriculture and Trade office entitled Enhancing Sustainable Utility Regulation (ENSURE).

The renewable energy internship is a tailored U.S. based training program under the USAID/NARUC clean energy series in which selected candidates from regulatory bodies from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean are invited to participate in a two-week internship hosted by the U.S. State regulatory commission.

The goal of the internship program is to facilitate the exchange of practical expertise and best practices in promoting renewable energy between U.S. commissions and developing country counterparts to help ramp up the interns skills and knowledge on clean energy issues that will enhance their respective regulatory bodies participation in policy dialogue and inform the revision or existing/adoption of new regulation in support of renewable energy uptake.

Mrs Atherley-Ikechi will have an internship with a U.S. public utility commission in Des Moines, Iowa from August 8-17, 2011 and then attend a 2-day workshop in Washington, D.C. discussing a wide variety of issues related to promoting and implementing renewable energy resources.
