Bermuda takes part in renewable energy meeting
Bermuda joined with nations across the Caribbean for a regional conference on renewable energy.
Walter Roban, the Minister of Home Affairs, represented the island at the 13th Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum, held online on October 28 and 29.
Mr Roban took part in two discussions during the event – one on turning clean energy aspirations into action and another on fast tracking electrification in an island context.
The minister said the conference was an “excellent opportunity” to highlight Bermuda’s efforts to embrace renewable energy, including the adoption of electric vehicles.
Mr Roban added: “We must continue to have open dialogue and encourage the integration of renewable energy technologies, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and our impact on the environment.
"Climate change and the resilience of small island nations are among the most critical issues we face – all Caribbean leaders must continue to put this to the forefront of all discussions."
