Trinomics has been contracted by the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) to support them in developing baseline analysis on skills and jobs in sustainable energy in the Caribbean. Currently, Trinomics (together with TNO Caribbean Branch Office and ASU Arizona State University) is carrying out an IDB-funded regional project “Building capacity and Regional Integration for the Development of a Generation of Entrepreneurs (BRIDGE) in Sustainable Energy and Information and Communication Technologies Program“. The BRIDGE project seeks develop human capital, while encouraging gender equality, to meet the expected future demand for technicians, professionals and entrepreneurs in the sustainable energy (SE) and information and communication technology (ICT) sectors.
GIZ will support the implementation of this IDB-funded project through an in-kind contribution, the REETA project, and shares the same specific objectives as the BRIDGE project.
The REETA project has the following objectives in terms of capacity building:
- strengthening of selected regional institutions active in the field of EE and RE
- capacity building of local providers of products and services
- support of universities and vocational training institutes in the field of RE and EE
Trinomics will provide a detailed assessment of the technical and professional capacity for sustainable energy in Grenada and St. Lucia within this REETA project. This will help understand the general dynamics of Sustainable Energy labour market in these countries. We will focus on the policy context supporting sustainable energy, the programmes offered by the education institutions on these topics and we will assess workforce needs in the sustainable energy sector.
