In April 2008, The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat commenced the Energy Programme as one of the programmes within the Directorate of Trade and Economic Integration (TEI). The Energy Programme was assigned the responsibility of implementing a programmatic approach to energy sector developments in the Region. This establishes a departure from the mere projectized approach and aims to facilitate greater responsiveness in carrying out the energy related Community’s mandates as well as fostering a more harmonized approach to energy issues.
