The CREF Utility Leaders Workshop (ULW) is the cornerstone of CREF’s offering to senior utility executives. For CREF 2016, we extended the ULW to a full day and the event – in effect a conference in its own right – sold out. A full–house of Caribbean utilities engaged intensively with a world-class roster of experts and thought leaders.

View the agenda.

Comprising for 2017 a full day of highly interactive sessions and case-studies, this year’s CREF ULW will take place on October 18th and will focus, post-Irma and Maria, on critical issues around resilience, procurement, and the integration and implementation of renewables and storage on to island grids.

The 2017 ULW is co-hosted by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and co-chaired by Dr. Cletus Bertin, CEO of CARILEC, and H.G. Chissell, CEO of Advanced Energy Group. The agenda has been developed in close consultation with key stakeholders and in particular with Rocky Mountain Institute. Please view the main conference agenda for the roster of speakers and topics.
