Innovative Island Technologies at German-Caribbean Energy Conference

Innovative island technologies and knowhow "made in Germany“. This combination will be the starting point of the very first German-Caribbean Energy Conference on 27th November 2018 in Oranjestad, Aruba, which will be opened by Aruba’s prime minister. A unique opportunity to get in touch with entrepreneurs and experts from the German and Caribbean energy sector. Next to networking and many interesting discussions, organisations and interested parties can also take part in matchmaking sessions, which will take place on Aruba and on Curaçao.

Prime Minister of Aruba, Evelyn Wever-Croes will open the conference on 27th November. Keynote speakers will talk about energy solutions, energy policy, renewable island solutions and other relevant subjects. The promotion of smart and sustainable energy solutions in Germany has resulted in the establishment of an industry which offers some of the world’s leading knowhow technologies. This industry encompasses several thousands of small and medium sized enterprises specialised in development, design and production of renewable energy systems, energy efficiency solutions, smart grids and storage technologies. Also new energy technologies like power-to-Gas and fuel cells are the basis for cutting-edge energy solutions. This conference is part of a trade mission carried out by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy to the ABC Islands. After the speeches, company pitches and other interesting program sections, the conference will end with a cocktail party and live music.

Entry is free.
