CCREEE - start-up and first operational phase
Improved access to sustainable energy services for households, public institutions, businesses and industry in the Caribbean countries and territories.
1. Strengthened regional support capacities for RE&EE through the creation and efficiently managed CCREEE
2. Accelerated development, adoption and execution of regional and national gender sensitive RE&EE polices, targets and incentives through targeted regional interventions
3. Strengthened capacities of local key institutions and stakeholder groups through the up-scaling and replication of certified training and applied research programs and mechanisms
4. Enhanced awareness of key stakeholder groups on RE&EE opportunities through the up-scaling of regional mechanisms for data and knowledge management and advocacy
5. Increased RE&EE business opportunities for local companies and industry through the development and implementation of regional investment promotion programs and tailored financial schemes
Target group / Beneficiaries
The 15 CARICOM Member States with its over 16 million people are the key beneficiaries of the activities of the Centre. Non-CARICOM Member States can opt-in to become members
Start-Up Phase: selection of headquarters, recruitment of key staff, establishment of the office and internal procedures, inauguration of the Centre, first Technical Committee and Executive Board meetings.
First operational phase: development of the business plan (long-term planning and implementation framework) and the annual work plans (short-term planning framework which incorporates projects and activities to be executed by the Secretariat).
The project follows an official request of the SIDS-DOCK initiative to support the Caribbean countries in the establishment of CCREEE. Using RE&EE is an effective tool to reduce dependence on fossil fuel imports and to redirect scarce resources to health, education and economic development.
