New Energy Events
CCAA is a founding partner of New Energy Events’ Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF), launched in 2009 to gather governments, utilities, multilaterals and investors to explore opportunities to ramp up investment in clean energy across the Caribbean. 250 delegates from 20 countries flew into Montego Bay for the inaugural event. The need – for information, for meetings, for dialog, for transparency in the market – was clear. Since then, CREF – and the market – hasn’t looked back.
