The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - By Clau­dia Elei­box

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cers and per­son­nel of Caribbean Elec­tric Util­ity Ser­vices Cor­po­ra­tion (CARILEC) will meet in Saint Lu­cia from May 16–19, 2017.

The Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cers and Fi­nance Con­fer­ence, an an­nual event, wil this year be hosted at San­dals Grande. CARILEC, along with Saint Lu­cia Elec­tric­ity Ser­vices Lim­ited (LUCELEC), has themed the con­fer­ence: “Move­ment: Util­i­ties, Peo­ple, Tech­nol­ogy and In­vest­ment”. Over 150 CEOs and CFOs are ex­pected to at­tend. All the del­e­gates will be rep­re­sent­ing util­ity com­pa­nies and or­ga­ni­za­tions from the Caribbean, and Cen­tral and Latin Amer­ica.

A press con­fer­ence pan­elled by CARILEC’s Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor, Dr. Cle­tus Bertin; Project Man­ager, Andrew Thor­ing­ton and Train­ing Man­ager Sophia Lau­rena Primus was held on Wed­nes­day this week. Dr. Bertin has only re­cently been ap­pointed as Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor of CARILEC and he and the com­pany look for­ward to great progress in the near fu­ture. The Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cers and Fi­nance Con­fer­ence will be one of the first or­ders of busi­ness for him.

The en­ergy sec­tor, glob­ally, is un­doubt­edly sway­ing to cli­mate change adap­ta­tion, sus­tain­abil­ity and re­new­able sources. Dr. Bertin be­lieves that the con­fer­ence will ad­dress han­dling this trans­for­ma­tion: “It is timely be­cause it will ad­dress, in a fun­da­men­tal way, a num­ber of key el­e­ments for suc­cess in the en­ergy land­scape, and so CARILEC wel­comes full, as­so­ciate and af­fil­i­ate mem­bers, as well as other in­ter­ested par­ties, to this tremen­dously im­por­tant fo­rum for knowl­edge-shar­ing and net­work­ing.”

The panel was ex­cited to an­nounce the ac­tiv­i­ties for the up­com­ing con­fer­ence which will in­clude var­i­ous work­shops, net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, panel dis­cus­sions and pre­sen­ta­tions ad­dress­ing adap­ta­tion, sus­tain­able en­ergy, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, com­pany train­ing, plan­ning, busi­ness, risk anal­y­sis and oc­cu­pa­tional health and safety.

LUCELEC and the Gov­ern­ment of Saint Lu­cia (Labour Depart­ment) are in­volved in the over­all ex­e­cu­tion of this con­fer­ence. CARILEC was also pleased to in­form that the event was sched­uled near the time of the Saint Lu­cia Jazz Fes­ti­val to en­able del­e­gates to at­tend that, too.

Any­one in­ter­ested in reg­is­ter­ing for this con­fer­ence can find out more in­for­ma­tion on the web­site www.carilec.org.
