The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) announced it would be supporting Dominica in its aim to reduce energy costs and incorporate renewable energy and efficiency solutions in the country’s public sector.
The programme’s first step will include conducting energy audits on public buildings and facilities. The long-term goal is to provide blended resources to address energy security issues and find clean energy solutions.
Dominica will be receiving support from the CDB’s Sustainable Energy for the Eastern Caribbean Programme, and assistance from the European Union and the UK’s Department for International Development.
The project follows the CDB’s objectives of supporting inclusive growth and sustainable development, and strengthening and modernising social and economic infrastructure.
