The Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) is the largest gathering of the regional energy market on the annual calendar: 25+ Caribbean nations represented by their governments, utilities, and/or regulators; 500+ attendees; 40+ countries represented.

CREF is unique in terms of both its size, and in terms of the seniority and breadth of its participants. Simply put, the conference represents the market, the full ecosystem of stakeholders.

“CREF is the main RE conference in the region that assembles the key stakeholders in the energy transition. It is the place to be,” Alicia Taylor, Investment Management Lead Officer, IDB Invest
