More About CREF:
Through the last decade, CREF has become the place the Caribbean energy market meets - governments, utilities, multilaterals and investors all explore opportunities to ramp up investment in clean energy across the region. As the largest and longest established clean energy event in the Caribbean, CREF provides a compelling mixture of world-class content and an unmatched opportunity to meet all the key participants in this rapidly emerging market. Whether you are a regional policy-maker or an international developer, a regional utility or a multilateral active in the Caribbean, CREF is simply a must-attend event.
Attendees can expect a cutting-edge agenda designed with one thought in mind: How do we get the energy transition over the finish line? Some issues are perennial - the need for regulators to take the helm, for example, and the dearth of bankable projects - while others are new to the table. What role will Green Hydrogen come to play in the regional economy? Can we now scale up e-mobility programs and infrastructure across the region? Has Covid accelerated the shift to DG in the region? These topics will be tackled and much more over the course of CREF 2022.
Please note: You must be fully vaccinated to attend CREF 2022. To learn more, please visit CREF's website here.
The benefits of attending CREF as part of The Maritimes Energy Association led Atlantic Canada Trade Mission are many. Read what some former delegates have said:
“Atlantic Canada staff and trade commissioners were very engaged and helpful throughout the mission. My constructive recommendations are really for our own company: It would have been helpful to have a second person to split meetings, attend conference presentations and seek out key contacts during networking events.”
“The pre-mission briefings provided good insight into how our time would be best used, as well as introducing us to key individuals to lean on for support and advice from the Atlantic Delegation.”
“CREF and the Atlantic Canada team is a tremendous asset to clean tech exporters from Atlantic Canada. It has served as a launch pad for our business, and we hope that it continues to be a focus of ACOA for many years to come.”
“One of the most interesting and potentially the most promising show I have attended in 30 years of business.”
