The Future of Energy – the CARICOM Regional Energy Apprenticeship Programme 2020/2021 Cohort

The CARICOM Regional Energy Apprenticeship Programme (REAP) provides young professionals with the opportunity to gain meaningful hands-on experience at a regional institution deploying sustainable energy technologies and applications across CARICOM.

Our current cohort of REAP Associates provide technical expertise in the spheres of energy systems development, energy diplomacy, knowledge management and communications, programme management, policy and regulatory affairs, among other areas, at the following regional institutions:

  • The CARICOM Energy Unit (CCS)
  • The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB)
  • The Caribbean Electric Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC)
  • The CARICOM Regional Organisation for Standards and Quality (CROSQ)
  • The Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE)
  • The CARICOM Development Fund (CDF)

REAP was conceptualised by the Energy Unit of the CARICOM Secretariat and is implemented by the Technical Assistance Programme for Sustainable Energy in the Caribbean (TAPSEC) in collaboration with the abovementioned partner institutions.  The REAP is made possible through the financial support of the European Union.

We are pleased to introduce you to The Future of Energy, the 2020/2021 REAP cohort. We encourage you to read their profiles, experiences, key initiatives they’ve worked on to date, and a word of advice for future candidates.
