This quarter’s BBE was once more well attended and the topic Renewable Energy (RE) was well received and thoroughly engaged all members present.
Our Feature Speaker, Ms. Anita Hankey, Senior Planning Officer, Team Lead - Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) Energy Research and Planning Division (ERPD) of the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries (MEEI), spoke passionately about Trinidad and Tobago’s need to be able to come up to speed with where we are in terms of developing and implementing Green Energy in comparison to other islands in the region.
Her focus was highly inclusive of educating the population, and in particular, how concepts and themes around renewable energy can be sustainably infused into the education system for our children and young people.
The evening included an interactive question and answer session which highlighted several alternatives for reducing energy costs.
