CEW 2013 will be staged across the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) from November 10-16, 2013 under the general theme, “A Secure and Sustainable Energy Future Begins Now!” This is the third staging of CEW since its establishment as an annual event by CARICOM Energy Ministers in 2011. The model is for the CEW to be marked by the staging of concurrent National Energy Weeks in the Community, under a general theme. This allows Member States the flexibility to tailor their activities to address country specific activities.
Aim and Objectives
The overall aim of CEW is to build awareness among energy stakeholders, and in particular, the general citizenry in CARICOM on sustainable energy issues, and the actions necessary for the transformation of the market towards a state where it becomes characterized by high levels of energy efficiency, and high utilization of renewable energy and clean energy options.
Regional Level Activities
National Level Activities
Almost all CARICOM Member States have indicated that a range of activities, aimed at achieving the objectives, will be executed during the week. Member States are encouraged to establish relevant partnerships at the national level among the public and private sectors and non-governmental organisations, towards securing resources for the execution of various activities.
