With the recent fluctuations in oil and gas prices, most energy importing countries are scrambling to find a solution to their energy requirements. Renewable Energy (RE) has been touted as the solution to these islands' energy requirements. The presentation will review the various RE options available and would focus on the most viable option for Trinidad and Tobago in the short to medium term. The presentation would then discuss the enabling environment necessary for making renewable energy an integral part of the generation mix of the country and would provide a road map to the way forward.
