Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum

October 19 to 21, 2015 - Miami, Florida, USA

CREF 2014 was a sell-out event with more than 450 delegates attending from over 40 countries. Governments and utilities from 21 Caribbean countries were represented. The high turnout speaks to CREF’s track-record as the leading meeting-place for the regional energy market, and also to the extent of the opportunity to develop renewables across the Caribbean. Where once the focus was on the enabling environment, now attention is sharply focused on commercialization and implementation. If ever there was a time to engage in the Caribbean renewables market, it is now.

Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum 2015 will be a three day event, the largest in the region, exploring renewable energy investment opportunities across the Caribbean. Highlights:

  • A single place to meet the key stakeholders driving the development of renewables in the Caribbean: government officials, utilities, regulators, multilaterals, developers, providers of capital and technology
  • Optional Caribbean Utility 2.0 Workshop. A highly granular half day workshop dedicated to the implications of high renewable penetrations on island utilities
  • Country Spotlights on: Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St. Lucia
  • Substantial Exhibition. The largest collection of vendors and suppliers to the energy market under one roof on the annual calendar
  • Dedicated CREF Private Social Network Platform. Platform includes a bespoke one-on-one meeting maker. Begin networking long before you arrive at CREF. Map out a full schedule of meetings with potential partners and clients
