“Having attended CREF for over a decade, it has been invaluable in providing connections, business partnerships, and local knowledge. The organizers are terrific and the event is a lot of fun.” Marc Lopata, Solar Island Energy

The Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) is the premier annual meeting place for more than 400 energy sector and finance leaders who are united in a common goal: to ramp up investment in clean energy across the Caribbean.

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.

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

Market Intelligence

Access to proprietary market data and research:

  • 100+ speakers across numerous focused and carefully developed sessions and presentations.
“CREF has yet again proved its usefulness for me as part of a regulatory body. it is yet again a perfect forum for interaction, discussion and generating new ideas for moving forward in the Caribbean.” Dave Abeleven, Energy Authority of Suriname
