Monday, October 17, 2016 8:00 AM – Wednesday, October 19, 2016 5:00 PM

Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF 2016)


Launched in 2009, CREF is the largest annual gathering of regional and international energy sector stakeholders exploring renewable energy investment opportunities in the Caribbean.

Gathering 500 delegates and 100 speakers across multiple tracks, CREF is THE place to meet key market participants: from government officials, utilities and regulators to multilaterals, developers and providers of capital and technology. Put in perspective, over 20 Caribbean countries were represented at CREF 2015 either by their government or their utility, or in many instances by both.

CREF Agenda: Strength in Depth

CREF’s agenda features an astonishing array of speakers recruited to analyze and debate the full spectrum of issues facing the region as it diversifies its energy matrix. CREF 2016 will feature 100 speakers across 30 sessions. The agenda will be published shortly. View the CREF 2015 agenda here.

Engagement with Key Stakeholders

The first day of CREF is comprised of private stakeholder meetings. Historically these have been hosted by CARICOM, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Organization of American States (OAS), the U.S. Departments of State and Energy, The World Bank, and the Government of Canada. The organizers of CREF provide gratis meeting space and logistical support. This level of engagement with key donor organizations is reflected in turn by a comprehensive turnout from regional governments.

Online Meeting Platform for CREF Delegates

CREF features a dedicated social networking platform. A closed community which features all CREF participants, the platform enables CREF attendees to create an individual profile, view all other delegates, and request meetings. Attending a conference is an investment of both time and resources; attend CREF and arrive in Miami with the meetings you need to see a return on that investment.

CREF-Castalia Renewable Island Index & Marketplace

All attendees to CREF have access to the annual CREF-Castalia Renewable Island Index & Marketplace. The Index measures the readiness of each jurisdiction to develop and implement renewable energy projects. The Marketplace is a detailed database of renewable projects – both distributed and utility scale – in various stages of development.

Extensive Exhibition

Featuring 30+ exhibitors, CREF’s exhibition is the largest collection of vendors and suppliers to the energy market under one roof on the annual calendar. For information on sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, please download the sponsorship brochure here.

Providers of Market Intelligence Throughout the Year

CREF is not just an event, it’s an ongoing initiative to provide market participants both in the Caribbean and abroad with the tools and intelligence to make sound decisions. CREF publishes a twice monthly newsletter featuring proprietary news and intelligence on the regional renewables market. We also host regular webinars on the market.
