2017 Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum

Miami, Florida

CREF 2017, the largest annual gathering of the Caribbean energy market, will take place at the JW Marriott Marquis, Miami, from October 18th-20th.

The numbers speak for themselves: 500 attendees from 50 countries attended CREF 2016. Over 20 Caribbean countries were represented either by their government or by their utility, or in many instances, by both.

From utility scale to distributed generation, storage to smart grids, financing to regulation, energy efficiency to the emerging role of natural gas in the Caribbean, CREF is the primary meeting place for regional and international market participants.

CREF is where knowledge meets need, projects meet finance, and where the Caribbean meets the global experience of developing renewables and diversifying national energy matrices.
