The project aims to support the Caribbean (CARICOM) countries in the use of Renewable Energies (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) through the Establishment of the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) in Barbados. The aim is to improve access to sustainable energy services for households, public institutions, businesses and industry in the Caribbean countries and territories.
