The Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum CREF Home IDB
CREF 2011
CREF 2015

Mark your calendars. CREF 2015 will be co-hosted by the Government of the Dominican Republic and will take place from October 19th-21st at the Barceló Bávaro Convention Center in Punta Cana. Registration is now open and a 15% early bird discount will apply to all registrations received before May 29th.

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.

We look forward to seeing you at CREF 2015!
