Bahamas joins regional renewable energy initiativeThe Bahamas has joined a regional renewable energy initiative and has signed the Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE).

Darren Henfield, Bahamas Minister of Foreign Affairs, signed the agreement on behalf of the government of The Bahamas within the margins of the 41st Community Council of Ministers held at the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat in Georgetown, Guyana 15 January 2018.


The agreement which was opened for signature at the 38th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM in Grenada in July 2017, established the CCREEE which is intended to function as the implementation hub for the CARICOM energy policy, as well as the Caribbean Sustainable Roadmap and Strategy (C-SERMS).

The Barbados-based CCREEE, when fully operational, is expected to improve the quantity and quality of programmes and projects in sustainable energy within the Region. Energy plays a critical part in supporting the sustainable development of Caribbean countries and the CCREEE, an action-oriented institution, will lead to improvements in sustainable energy production, delivery and use, through increased renewable energy applications and energy efficiency measures.

Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis welcomed Commodore Davy Rolle of the Bahamas Maritime Authority in a courtesy call, January 12, 2018 at the Office of the Prime Minister, accompanied by Minister of Transport Frankie Campbell.

The Office of the Prime Minister, Grand Bahama, has released a press statement about developments on the island and the impact they will have on the local economy. Read the statement here.
