A wave of geothermal in the Caribbean – or just another ripple?

CREF 2016, the largest annual gathering of the Caribbean energy market, will take place at the InterContinental Miami from October 17th-19th.

CREF 2015 gathered close to 500 delegates from 41 countries. 21 Caribbean countries were represented either by their government or by their utility, or in many instances, by both.

Today, the price of oil is recovering and the future of Petrocaribe is in the balance. Energy security is top of the political agenda region-wide. Meanwhile governments have returned from Paris with national commitments to reduce emissions and with the promise of substantial international funding to support those objectives.

From utility scale to distributed generation, storage to smart grids, financing to regulation, energy efficiency to the role of gas as a complement to renewables, CREF 2016 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.

Join us at CREF 2016 in Miami for the Caribbean energy event of the year.
