The Caribbean Renewable Energy Development Programme (CREDP) begun as an initiative within the CARICOM member states whom decided to work together to prepare a regional project to remove the barriers to the use of renewable energy and to foster its development and commercialisation.The project activities concentrate on: (1) strengthening of regional energy sector institutions; (2) government advisory with regards to Renewable Energy (RE ) and Energy Efficiency (EE) policies; (3) preparation of RE and EE projects for investment decisions; (4) capacity building activities and public awareness campaigns. It is expected that the contribution of RE sources to the region’s energy balance will be significantly increased. At the same time the Caribbean’s contribution to Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) will be reduced. While the GIZ acts as the implementing agency, the CARICOM serves as the counterpart organization.
