What does TAPSEC do

The Technical Assistance Programme for Sustainable Energy in the Caribbean (TAPSEC) supports the implementation of the CEP, C-SERMS, and the various national energy policies and strategies for participating CARIFORUM member states – including the National Energy Policy and the sustainable energy strategy of the Dominican Republic.

The project is expected to increase and improve access to modern, affordable and sustainable energy services, triggering benefits for all – including the rural poor.

TAPSEC supports the region’s transition to a more sustainable and climate-compatible development pathway, by facilitating “Access of all CARIFORUM citizens to modern, clean and reliable energy supplies at affordable and stable prices, through improved energy efficiency and a significantly increased share of local and regional renewable energy sources.”

This overarching objective will be achieved through, “The effective implementation of the CEP, C-SERMS, and National Renewable Energy Policy and Strategy of the Dominican Republic, through the optimization of regional synergies.”

It is a direct response to Focal Area 2 of the Caribbean Regional Indicative Programme (CRIP) 2014-2020, which focuses on Climate Change, Disaster Management, Environment, and Sustainable Energy, and addresses the sustainable development of participating countries.

TAPSEC is related to general objective 2.3 of the CRIP – “Promote energy efficiency, develop and use renewable energy” – and more specifically to objectives 2.3.1, and 2.3.2 which respectively state:

  1. Clean energy security and Renewable Energy Sources (RES) investment framework enhanced; and
  2. Policy, legislative and regulatory framework for energy sector management and transition towards renewable energy (RE) improved.
