Public Awareness Survey on Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Energy Pricing in Trinidad & Tobago

Public Awareness Survey on Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Energy Pricing in Trinidad & Tobago

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (GoRTT) and the European Union (EU) Delegation of Trinidad and Tobago has partnered under the Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) Initiative to implement a project entitled “Support to the Implementation of the Trinidad and Tobago’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC)”.

The purpose of this study, conducted by Market Facts & Opinions (MFO) is to develop a Contextual Analysis on perception and attitudes to inform the strategy, design and implementation of a public awareness campaign on energy efficiency, energy pricing of electricity and renewable energy. The overall objective of this GCCA+ Project is to support Trinidad and Tobago in achieving its commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Paris Agreement as outlined in its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) target.

Specifically, the project aims to:

• Strengthen the country’s capacity to produce and maintain electric energy through solar systems.

• Develop operational systems for the effective implementation of the new renewable energy (RE)/energy efficiency (EE)-conducive policy, legislative and regulatory framework.

• Raise public awareness on EE, appropriate pricing of energy and on the benefits of using RE.
