Creating a More Resilient Energy Sector

In an era of fierce and frequent hurricanes, few would argue with the premise that the energy sector in the Caribbean must become more resilient—and fast. But what’s the most effective way to harden the electric grid, and where’s the money going to come from? How can island nations, territories, and communities accelerate planning and develop consensus about priorities? How can they incorporate renewable energy sources in a way that makes sense to both power utilities and their customers? These are just a few of the thorny questions participants will tackle at the 10th Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF), which takes place November 7-9 in Miami, Florida.

The Role of LNG in the Energy Mix

Natural gas production in the United States has boomed in recent years, contributing to a supply glut and reduced prices, while regulatory changes have paved the way for expanded U.S. exports. At the same time, technological innovations have provided new options for transporting liquefied natural gas (LNG), giving countries more flexibility to import this fuel seasonally or on a small scale. For some countries in Latin America and the Caribbean—especially those that currently burn fuel oil or coal to generate electricity—such factors could help change the calculus about the role of LNG in the energy mix.

Carlos Manuel Rodríguez, Costa Rica’s Minister of Environment and Energy, explained that this comprehensive approach will require no less than rethinking the concept of economic development.

Going Green in Dominica—Literally and Figuratively

One year after Hurricane Maria stripped Dominica’s trees of their leaves and turned the lush Caribbean island to brown, Ambassador Vince Henderson reports that nature is rebounding. “The island is looking green again, and I think psychologically that makes a big difference,” he said recently, just days after returning from a visit home. In an interview, the diplomat talked about the resilience of his fellow citizens and some of the steps his country is taking to become more resilient to climate change.
