Delegation to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean
03/12/2013 - EU Participates in Electric Car Rally
The European Union is working with the private sector in Barbados to promote the use of solar cars on the island. Head of the Delegation to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean Mikael Barfod on 23 November participated in the inaugural Electric Vehicle Rally, which had 13 entrants. The British High Commissioner also joined the rally in a fun-filled day showing the way for the new, exciting and much cheaper way of getting around.
Recently the EU provided a 10th European Development Fund Grant of €30,000 (which is administered by the Caribbean Export Development Agency), to Caribbean Consultants Limited, as part funding that went towards the construction and outlay of a 14 bay carport covered with 102 solar photo voltaic panels out of Germany. This is part of the EU's new emphasis on support towards renewable energy in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.
