Understanding T&T’s Energy: Promoting Sustainability through Smarter Energy Choices.
The Ministry of Energy and Energy Affairs launched its Renewable Energy (RE) Awareness Campaign in tandem with CARICOM Energy Week on November 7, 2011 at the Brian Lara Promenade (opp. Central Bank).
The RE forum will be used to inform citizens of incentives made available in the Fiscal Incentives Act No. 13 of 2010 and encourage private sector energy stakeholders to participate and invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
CARICOM Energy Week served to “raise awareness in relation to energy in general and to recognize the critical importance of energy to the economic development as well as the important role of RE and EE and conservation”.
As part of this week long event, the Ministry set-up three booths/energy islands, at the Brian Lara Promenade, Harris Promenade and Tobago's Esplanade.
