Barbadian, Jamaican and Bahamian Hotels to Go Green

barbados5-300x200Peter Jordens reports that the Caribbean Hotel Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Action-Advanced Program (CHENACT-AP) that was launched in Barbados in 2012 is now being initiated in the Bahamas and Jamaica. Its main objective is to improve the competitiveness of small and medium-sized hotels through improved use of energy, with emphasis on renewable energy and micro-generation.

Additionally, Jordens reminds us, there will be positive impacts to the environment in terms of reductions in greenhouse gases and ozone layer depletion.

This major energy efficiency program for hotels is being implemented with support from the Inter-American Bank (IDB). The IDB said the project aims to bundle the carbon emission reductions (CERs) from the Bahamas, Barbados, and Jamaica, as a result of the energy efficiency measures and renewable energy applications.

[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this item and links to our attention.]
