Under the UAE-CREF initiative, clean energy projects in the Bahamas, Barbados, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines were inaugurated in March 2019. UAE-CREF intends to deploy renewable energy projects in 16 Caribbean countries in three cycles to reduce energy costs, increase energy access, and enhance climate resilience.

ITPEnergised, supported by local and international experts, considered wave energy and other ocean energy options as well fixed offshore, floating offshore wind and ocean thermal energy conversion projects from a technical, environmental and logistical perspective as well local supply chain, connectivity to the electricity grid, tourism impact and various financial and other considerations to determine the practicality of these technologies in Barbados.
After reviewing 16 possible ocean energy project sits the report concluded wave and ocean energy was not suitable for Barbados due to the level of "commercial-scale un-readiness" and recommended development of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine systems located off the island's north coast.

"We can and will lead in bio-energy, in particular the production of biomethane/renewable natural gas, the production of wood pellets, syngas, and we will fully explore the economic potential in these resources in order to meet the goal of 100 pct renewable energy by 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals," Hill said in an address to
the recent Bio-Digestion: Benefits to Barbados conference in Bridgetown. Presently only an estimated 4 pct to 6 pct of Barbados' energy needs are being met by renewable.

The three projects, all of which broke ground in November, 2019, will deliver 2.35MW of solar and 637kWh of battery storage capacity, while displacing more than 2.6 million tpy of CO2 and saving over 895,000 lpy, worth about $1.1 million, in diesel fuel.
The UAE-CREF was launched in 2017 and intends to deploy renewable energy projects in 16 Caribbean countries in three cycles to reduce energy costs, increase energy access, and enhance climate resilience. UAE foreign aid for renewable energy projects now totals almost $1 billion since 2013, supporting more than 40 countries.

According to the study, over the past decade fossil fuel CO2 emissions decreased "significantly" in 25 countries -- Aruba, Barbados, Croatia, Czech Republic, North Korea, Denmark, France, Greece, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Malta, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the US, Uzbekistan, and Venezuela. Notable was Germany, whose emissions did not decrease significantly.
The study notes that growth in global emissions of 1.6 pct in 2017 was within the range of the projected growth of 2.0 pct (range of 0.8 to 3.0 pct) based on national emission projections for China, the US, and India and projections of gross domestic product corrected for fossil fuel carbon intensity of the economy (IFF trends) for the rest of the world.
