A delegation of two will represent Anguilla at a Sustainable Energy Conference opening in the Dutch Territory of Aruba on Wednesday.
The delegation will comprise Minister of Home Affairs the Hon. Walcott Richardson who has responsibility for Environment and Chairman of the Anguilla Electricity Board Mr. James Richardson.
The three day international conference titled “Our future with green Energy” will showcase state of the art sustainable energy technologies, feasible trends and visions presented by diverse international experts to participants from both the public and private sectors.
The event is hosted by the Government of Aruba, energy production and water production and distribution company WEB Aruba N.V., the electricity distribution company NV ELMAR and Utilities Aruba.
A note from the organisers indicates that due to its excellent wind, sun and sea conditions, Aruba has a great potential for cost-effective renewable energy generation. It has initiated the transition away from imported fossil fuel dependency and is in the process of implementing a whole range of sustainable energy technologies.
Therefore – not surprisingly - this Conference on Green Energy will focus on new wind, water and sun energy technology and the implementation of these technologies. The Conference will provide a platform to share knowledge and vision amongst international parties and act as a meeting point for individuals from the political, corporate and academic worlds.
Funding for Anguilla’s participation at the conference is being provided through the European Commission with some support from the Government of Anguilla and Anglec.
The delegation is expected to return to the island over the coming weekend.
