Environment and Climate Action

Duration: 42 months (December 2019 – June 2023)

Budget: €2 400 000

Overview:

The programme aims to increase Trinidad and Tobago's resilience to climate change by introducing renewable energy as an energy source for electricity generation, thereby contributing to energy security while reducing the use of fossil fuel-based electricity both environmentally and economically. This will successfully contribute to Trinidad and Tobago's National Determined Contribution (NDC) to reduce carbon emissions by 15% through the year 2030.

This programme is expected to result in direct Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction through solar energy generation, and indirect GHG reduction through implementation of enabling activities for further growth in EE and RE adoption in T&T.

Objective

The objective of the project is to increase the availability and use of energy from renewable sources, to decrease the emissions of CO2 from the use of fossil fuels and raise public awareness on energy efficiency, correct pricing of energy and benefits of using renewable energy.

Specific Outcomes

  1. Installation of solar energy systems in public utilities and remote communities with the increased capacity to maintain solar power systems) will contribute to building up technical expertise and improve awareness on the benefits and potential of renewable energy.
  2. Support to the implementation of the new, Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency-conducive policy, legislative and regulatory framework. This component will aim at maximizing the opportunities available to develop and implement appropriate policy measures and remove gaps in current policies.
  3. Public awareness-raising on energy efficiency, correct pricing and renewable energy) will seek to address the lack of awareness on the benefits of using renewable energy and adopting energy efficiency.
