The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a Swedish marine energy developer to supply renewable energy to the Eastern Caribbean.
The Swedish marine energy company, Minesto, in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and the Antigua and Barbuda Science and Innovation Park will undertake a feasibility study to determine the possibility that renewable ocean energy can be provided by Minesto’s Deep Green technology.
Dr. Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto said building sustainable energy infrastructure could be a key component as the Government of Antigua and Barbuda plans to replace fossil fuel with renewable green energy.
In January 2019, UNOPS opened its first science and innovation center in Antigua and Barbuda to support national and regional innovation in the fields of science and technology.
Jonas Svensson, Head of Global Innovation and Technology at UNOPS, said the purpose of their global innovation centers is to create solutions.
“The purpose of our global innovation centers is to bring together needs and solutions. The collaboration between Minesto and the Government of Antigua and Barbuda is an excellent example of this, and we look forward to supporting the initiative,” Svensson said.
