The Sustainable Energy for the Eastern Caribbean (SEEC) programme is a multi-donor trust fund and grant facility which assists countries in the Eastern Caribbean in addressing energy security issues. It was established in 2015 with funding from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), the European Union-Caribbean Investment Facility (EU-CIF) and then Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. SEEC operates in the following countries – Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
WHAT WE DO
SEEC provides financing to advance and implement renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions, particularly in the public sector. The programme assists eligible countries in reducing dependency on imported fossil fuels as well as capacity-building and project support for implementing energy efficiency initiatives. As of October 2018, SEEC has helped finalise 98 energy audits. It has also facilitated the ongoing replacement of over 21,000 street lights with energy-efficient lamps and the retrofitting of 93 government buildings to improve energy efficiency.
