Third Steering Committee Meeting of Caribbean Renewable Energy Development Programme (CREDP).

The CARICOM Secretariat’s Project Monitoring Unit held its third CREDP Steering Committee meeting on April 29 at its headquarters in Guyana. In attendance in person were participants from Belize, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Guyana, Cuba and representatives from the Regional Focal Point of   CEIS, Jamaica as well as the Caribbean Solar Energy Society (CSES), Trinidad and Tobago. Persons from all other countries participated by videoconference.


The meeting reviewed the status of project activities which were set to be undertaken since the second meeting which was held in December 2008. Overall, significant progress was made since the last meeting and recommendations were made for moving forward on those activities that had fallen behind.


An exit strategy was prepared and presented at the meeting in readiness for closure of the project and the departure of UNDP – major funders.  A presentation on CIPORE – the newly launched Caribbean Information Platform on Renewable Energy – was made to Committee Members.


A request has been made to UNDP for a short extension mainly due to delays outside the scope of the Project Monitoring Unit. Should the extension be granted, the project should finally end in November 2009.


CREDP is a regional project which focuses on renewable energy developments among twelve (12) Caribbean countries. The project was initiated in two phases: A preliminary feasibility phase from 2000 to 2002 executed in Jamaica by the SRC/CEIS and a full- fledged implementation phase 2003 to 2009 executed by the CARICOM Secretariat in Guyana.
