National Energy Transition Strategy to be Discussed at Chamber Luncheon 

The drive towards increased use of non-fossil fuel or alternative energy is gaining steam across the world, and St. Lucia has commenced its own process. The process is embodied in the National Energy Transition Strategy (NETS). What is the NETS? What are the main recommendations arising out of the NETS? How will the NETS impact your business?

These and other critical issues will be the focus of a joint presentation by the Department of Energy and the St. Lucia Electricity Services Ltd., at the upcoming Chamber Luncheon to be held on the 14th of November 2018 at the Palmville Conference Room, Coco Palm Hotel, Rodney Bay from 12:30 p.m. 

This Luncheon is sponsored by LUCELEC and will seek to bring members up to speed on the work and plans for increased alternative energy use in St. Lucia. LUCELEC as the single utility provider of electricity on island will per force play a crucial role in the execution of the National Energy Transition Strategy and the nature of that role will be discussed. 

The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture recognizes the importance of alternative energy both as a business opportunity and a critical resource in addressing Climate and Environmental concerns continues to seek to inform members on this critical issue. The dual role of electricity provision as a public good and an input into production has not been lost on the Chamber and as such the Chamber is extremely pleased that this critical dialogue can be facilitated in this small way. 

Understanding the implications for the electricity system and customers is critical and will be of keen interest to the Chamber, as well as being kept abreast of LUCELECs current and planned renewable energy efforts. The Chamber encourages the business community to come out, receive information and be part of the discussion on this national issue.
