National Energy Task Force Antigua and Barbuda gears up

The recently established National Energy Task Force Antigua and Barbuda has begun the process of data gathering and is also gearing up for a series of stakeholder consultations as it fulfils its mandate of producing a comprehensive and strategic National Sustainable Energy Policy.

The 18-member Task Force which was established by Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer, is to be chaired by electrical engineer Edward Baynes while project manager Brian Lyn is to be the deputy chair of the body.

Baynes noted “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on this Task Force. We have a lot of work to do and I am looking forward to the challenge. I think that renewable energy is the way to go. We are blessed with an abundance of sunshine and wind and we should harness them.”

“I am confident that this task force will produce a progressive Energy Policy. This Task Force includes some of the best minds in Antigua and Barbuda. We are happy that they have come on board to assist the government to develop and implement a comprehensive Energy Policy,” said Chief Implementation Officer in the Office of the Prime Minister, Ambassador Joan Underwood.
