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.

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.

This is an exciting time to be in the market. The Caribbean is transitioning away from a decade-long discussion around how to enable a resilient energy matrix, to one focused squarely on how to procure, finance and build world-class clean energy projects in the Caribbean. An array of projects are coming online as we speak and the pipeline is deep.

Reflecting the new era, CREF 2017 is shifting gears. This year's event will feature a full day of interactive project showcases, awards for project excellence, a day-long workshop on renewable integration, and a focus on critical themes such as new sources of financing, the implementation of storage, driving down project soft costs, and much more besides.

From utility scale to distributed generation, storage to smart grids, financing to procurement, energy efficiency to the emerging role of natural gas in the Caribbean, CREF is where the market meets and the discussion evolves.
