CCREEE PPF Public Sector Launch

In November 2020, the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) launched the private sector stream of the Project Preparation Facility (PPF) and today, the Centre kicked-off the public sector stream with a roundtable discussion.

CCREEE-CDF Financial Institutions Training: Recording of Day 1

Financial institutions across the Caribbean Community had the opportunity to learn more about project support systems and tools within the renewable energy and energy efficiency space. Although renewable energy and energy efficiency technology have seen notable decreases in cost, leading to significantly lower capital needed to invest in new systems, financing renewable energy projects remains a major difficulty in the region. Project development support, along with risk reduction measures can therefore increase investment in these projects. To support this endeavour, the CARICOM Development Fund (CDF) and the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) partnered to develop a...

Demystifying the Costs of Electricity Generation Technologies

The levelized cost of electricity is the most common indicator used to compare the cost competitiveness of electricity-generating technologies. Several studies claim that some renewable energy technologies, particularly utility-scale solar photovoltaic and onshore wind, are cost-competitive with fossil fuel–based technologies. However, there is no consensus on this point considering the wide variations in factors that influence the levelized costs of electricity across countries and technologies. This study calculates more than 4,000 levelized costs of electricity for 11 technologies, varying key input variables. The study shows that the levelized costs of electricity for renewable electricity technologies, except concentrated solar and offshore...

Economic Analysis of Battery Energy Storage Systems

The recent advances in battery technology and reductions in battery costs have brought battery energy storage systems (BESS) to the point of becoming increasingly cost-effective projects to serve a range of power sector interventions, especially when combined with PV and where diesel is the alternative, or where subsidies or incentives are used. Quantifying the economic impact of BESS requires a high level of temporal granularity in the analysis, because the time-steps required for a reliable assessment of costs and benefits are much shorter than the usual annual time steps of many power sector investment projects. In short, there is as...
