Abstract

This Policy is a national policy with a cross-sectoral approach. The strategic objectives of this Policy are (I) energy cost reduction, (ii) diversification and efficient use of energy sources, (iii) electricity reliability improvement, (iv) environmental protection, and (v) clean energy focused businesses. The priority areas of the Government of Antigua and Barbuda are energy conservation, protection of environment, generation of electricity using renewable energy sources, promotion of clean technologies, energy efficiency, and emission reduction. A Sustainable Energy Plan will be developed to meet the energy needs of the present generation by 2030 while safeguarding the environment and enabling future generations to meet their own energy needs, with a specific focus on energy conservation and efficiency, renewable energy development, education and awareness. An Energy Unit will be established within the Prime Minister’s office to be responsible for the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of this policy and the development and implementation of the Sustainable Energy Plan.
