About this project

Description

The objective of the project is the removal of the policy, technical and financial barriers to energy-efficient applications and solar photovoltaic technologies in Dominica's streets, outdoor areas and public buildings nationwide, initially targeting up to 5 communities including Dubique, Boetica, Roseau, Portstmouth, for further scale up. This will be achieved through the following outcomes: (i) improved knowledge, awareness and institutional capacity on EE applications and solar PV through demonstrations of their deployment in Dominica; (ii) the uptake of EE applications and solar PV technology promoted through adoption of new institutional arrangements, and policy and enforcement measures; and (iii) scaled-up EE applications and RET investments through implementation of newly proposed financial and institutional mechanisms. RE and EE Projects will lead to cumulative direct and direct post project GHG emission reductions of 100,899 tCO2eq
