The Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF), the largest annual gathering of the Caribbean renewable energy market, today announced seven projects as recipients of its first annual CREF Project Awards. The awards represent a wide spectrum of size and technologies and are given to some of the most innovative and financially compelling renewable energy projects in the region.
Many of these projects are the first of their kind either on their island or in the Caribbean region.
Award recipients were chosen by the CREF Project Award advisory group comprising leading figures drawn from regional entities such as CARILEC and CARICOM, and regional and international finance houses such as CIBC FirstCaribbean and Portland Private Equity.
