CARILEC Renewable Energy & Smart Grid Conference & Trade Show

September 29, 2021 - September 30, 2021

Theme: Remodeling the Future: Stronger. Greener. Smarter

What does a stronger, greener, and smarter energy future look like for our energy markets? Against the triple imperatives of economics, climate resilience and domestic value creations, CARILEC gathers regional and global industry leaders representing policy, regulation, academic research, renewable technologies and utility operations to the table under the theme Remodeling the Future: Stronger. Greener. Smarter.” 

With the COVID-19 global pandemic continuing to pose a dramatic challenge to energy leaders in the Caribbean region, the urgency for sustainable energy transition has become clearer than ever.  The advantages of renewable energy and its resiliency to weather the rising economic storm, if accordingly planned and designed, were already visible in different impacted regions throughout the world. Investments to foster a cleaner and greener energy supply have brought not only environmental but also substantial local benefits. The crisis has provided a first, unexpected foreshadowing of the mounting climate emergency and the vulnerability of our economies and their energy systems. The pandemic has shown how quickly all we are accustomed to, can change. But it has also demonstrated that collectively and with a common purpose, we are able to act decisively. During the recent years, a global effort has been made to develop innovative technology solutions, effective policy measures and new economic approaches to turn renewable energy into a competitive and reliable source for electricity generation and supply. Now it is the right moment to reassess long-standing assumptions, perceived barriers, and default decisions to adjust and redefine the pathway for sustainable energy transition in the Caribbean.

The Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Conference and Trade Show offers the latest expert insights, innovative technology solutions and room for exchange of best-practices and experiences regarding the sustainable integration of Renewable Energy and the related development of Smart Grids in our Caribbean countries. Stakeholders from the region and around the world will meet to exchange and discuss ideas, opportunities, and solutions to accelerate energy transition, strengthen the economic recovery, bolster sustainable development, and set the course for a further decarbonization of the Caribbean energy sector. This year’s conference will also feature a Women in Renewable Energy (WIRE) convening with women leaders throughout the energy sector in the Caribbean and beyond delivering presentations and facilitating discussions on their critical role and stellar contribution to the sector.

Secure your space at this two (2) day conference which will be replete with virtual presentations, lectures, large and small group plenaries, and case studies.  Get the latest developments on savvy trends and technologies in this rapidly evolving and dynamic field.
