Trinidad and Tobago is well positioned to receive financial, legislative and technical support from the British High Commission, for the establishment of wind farms as a form of renewable energy.
This was revealed during a courtesy visit by the British High Commissioner to T&T, Her Excellency Harriet Cross, with Minister of Planning and Development, Penelope Beckles last week.
Her Excellency emphasized that the British High Commission’s priorities in Trinidad and Tobago included energy, climate change, health, security, gender equality, combatting gender based-violence and trade.
High Commissioner Cross noted the UK has been considered globally as a leader in Wind energy, with more installed capacity than any other country.
As such the British government is ready to partner with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to execute wind power assessments, provide legislative support for the integration of renewable energy into the grid and remotely, as well as the provision of technical training and equipment.
