Major Focus on Alternative Energy by Jamaica

The volatility of the global energy market has forced consuming countries worldwide to take a serious look at the skyrocketing cost and its impact on their economies, and to plan and implement strategies aimed at reducing their dependence on fossil fuel.

The [Jamaican] Government, which is also feeling the effects of the cost of imported oil, has stepped up its effort to raise public awareness and plan strategies for the use of alternative energy, particularly renewable energy.

Included in the strategies are the launching of the country’s first National Energy Policy; setting the stage for the introduction of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG); promoting the use of solar energy and expanding wind farms.

There has also been an islandwide series of community and stakeholder workshops put on by the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ).
