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
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.
