PM Keith Rowley to Caricom – Increase provision of clean, secure energy

Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley today said Caribbean Community (Caricom) countries have an opportunity to increase the penetration of natural gas within the Caribbean, which will aid in providing a clean, secure supply of energy to regional countries as they transition away from sources such as coal and heavy fuel oil. Rowley, who is also the chairman of the 15-member regional integration movement, told the virtual opening of the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Chamber’s Energy Conference that many Caribbean countries have already begun their transition to sustainable forms of energy, by incorporating renewables into their energy mix.
