The Eastern Caribbean Energy Labeling Project ECELP officially ends as project, but continues as program

Closing Workshop in Antigua


On 31/03/2014 the EU, German Government and OECS financed Eastern Caribbean Energy Labeling Project officially ended in its current phase. Among the project's main achievements are the "Energy Sense = Dollar Savings" campaign, which the core piece of the project's public awareness campaign that included also information flyers and brochures on energy efficiency labelling. The project assisted the national bureaux of standards in the six independent OECS countries to test the energy efficiency of refrigerators and the durability of energy saving light bulbs. The introduction of energy labelling standards for household appliances was prepared and will be implemented by the national governments in the next phase. Mr. Bentley Browne, Director Social and Sustainable Development of the OECS Secretariat, said at the project closing workshop in February: "Albeit the EU and German Government financed phase of ECELP comes to an end, the Secretariat will continue the project as a program as it is important for the Member States".





ECELP Public Awareness Campaign launched


ECELP has officially launched its public awareness campaign in the 6 ECELP Member States of Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts & Nevis and St. Vincent & the Grenadines. The campaign informs the wide public about the advantages of using the information given on energy efficiency labels to purchase energy efficient appliances, save energy and money. The campaign was launched in various media events in the member countries and will be broadcasted until end of 2013 on various radio and TV stations. The clips can also be downloaded from the ECELP webpage: To watch the jingle just click the picture above.




Hydropower potential assessment completed for St. Lucia

Thumb 1

Using an innovative GIS based method, CREDP-GIZ has analysed the technical and economical hydropower potential of St. Lucia and Dominica. The results are compiled in two reports that use mainly graphical visualisation to show the results. The reports can be downloaded from the download section of by clicking here.



Hydropower potential assessment completed for Dominica

Thumb 2

The analysis that was made on the hydropower potential in St. Lucia was repeated in Dominica to assess the island's hydropower potential. The findings are summarised in the respective report that can be downloaded here.

On February 21st, 2013 representatives from the Sir Arthur Lewis College in St. Lucia, The St. Vincent Community College, the T.A.Marryshow Community College Grenada, the Dominica State College, and the Fitzroy Briant College in St. Kitts have met in St. Lucia to discuss the current progress and future plans for the implementation of PV courses and energy efficiency aspects into the institutions' curricula. While the St. Vincent and the Grenada colleges have already started to teach PV classes, the other three colleges are preparing for the implementation of those courses.

The meeting served as exchange of experience and lessons learned for those institutions that just start and as networking event for all colleges.
