The Caribbean’s premier meeting place for the clean energy transition

At CREF 2021, discussions were marked by a sense of real urgency. We’ve moved far beyond making the case for the energy transition; no one disputes the need. We now need to scale up and accelerate. How are we going to do that? At CREF 2022, we inspired action by bringing the market – the full ecosystem of policy-makers, regulators, utilities, investors, developers and financiers – together in an environment which encouraged the market to meet, originate and transact.

Aside from its size and the range of participants, here’s why CREF stands out from other events:
