Senator the Honourable Kamina Johnson, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade deposited Jamaica’s Instrument of Ratification for the Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) on Tuesday, February 27.

The ceremony took place in the margins of the 29th Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), held in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, from February 26-27.

The Agreement establishing the CCREEE was signed by CARICOM Heads of Government, including Prime Minister Andrew Holness, on July 6, 2017 at the Thirty-Eighth Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM in Grenada.

Establishment of the CCREEE will assist Jamaica in identifying and addressing gaps in its efforts to achieve its energy policy goals and targets for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.

Minister Johnson Smith was pleased to note that the centre will “support the transformation of the energy sector to an efficient low carbon producing one, by way of the provision of technical and implementation support, as well as the mobilisation of financial and technical resources.”

The first three years of the Centre’s operation will be supported through financial contributions from the Governments of Austria and Spain, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and other key development partners.
