CARICOM Member States in Action

Address by: Hon Dr. Gale Rigobert, Minister for Renewable Energy, Saint Lucia

Ladies and Gentlemen, fellow Saint Lucians.

It is my honour and privilege to deliver this address commemorating the thirteenth consecutive (13th) year of the celebration of Energy Awareness in Saint Lucia. Saint Lucia is the pioneer of this activity which has now become regional and is being coordinated by CARICOM. The event has grown tremendously; and where previously we celebrated Energy Awareness Week, we now celebrate Energy Awareness Month.

The regional theme this year for Energy Awareness Month is “Sustainable Energy for Sustainable Development”. The focus is on utilizing sustainable sources of energy and technology to fuel economic growth and national development.

My Government would like to reaffirm its commitment to pursuing a sustainable energy agenda, inclusive of its active response to mitigating climate change and promoting energy efficiency and the incorporation of renewable energy sources into our energy mix.
