IRENA – Caribbean Cooperation for Fostering Energy Transition Investments and Finance Investor Forum
The Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator CCSA and our partners the Caribbean Development Bank CDB, the Government of Barbados via the Energy Division and IRENA, through the SIDS Lighthouses Initiative, are co-hosting an event that will seek close collaborations with the regional organizations and financial institutions that have the mandate to promote energy transition actions in the region.
The event, takes the place of our 6th Investor Forum, will provide an opportunity for the Leaders, policymakers, regulators, power utilities, private sector, project developers and financing partners to address issues constraining the deployment of energy transition technologies driven by renewables, and commence the brokerage process of deploying the appropriate investment for renewable energy projects in the Caribbean whilst building the momentum towards implementation.
The overall objective is to promote an investment environment conducive to energy transition investments and facilitate access to affordable finance towards the implementation of energy transition projects in the Caribbean SIDS.
It is important to close the gaps in access to finance, but we can’t forget about closing the gaps in project preparation. At the Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator (CCSA), we understand this, and that’s why we’re working to connect Project Preparation Facilities with projects to ensure they are investment-ready. If your facility assists in preparing projects, we invite you to reach out to the CCSA. Together, let’s make sure that no gaps are left behind.
