New Energy Events, organizers of the largest annual gathering of the Caribbean energy market (CREF), and the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association, PR’s largest industrial association, have joined forces to launch PR-GRID. This event will, for the first time since Hurricane Maria, bring together local and international stakeholders to explore a roadmap for financing and building a resilient, economically viable electrical grid in Puerto Rico.
There is no shortage of capital and solutions for the rebuilding and revitalization of the Puerto Rican grid. Many investors, however, are still searching for a broad understanding of Puerto Rico’s needs, for clarity on the prevailing policy and regulatory environment, and for insight into the relationships between the various agencies managing grid reconstruction.
PR-GRID is designed to channel that enthusiasm, generate transparency around the need and the opportunity, and, conversely, provide Puerto Rican leadership with a marketplace through which to explore potential partners and offerings.
The Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association is a non-profit organization established in 1928 with the purpose of uniting all Puerto Rico’s manufacturers and service industries into a strong and effective body in order to further their mutual interests as they relate to the private and public sectors of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Today, PRMA is by far the biggest private association of industry leaders representing the interests of the private sector in Puerto Rico.
