New at Castalia

Castalia presents fourth annual Renewable Islands Index and Marketplace at CREF

For the fourth consecutive year, Castalia presented our Renewable Islands Index—our annual ranking of jurisdictions in the Caribbean based on their policy/regulatory environment, projects developed to date, and future projects planned—at the Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) . This year’s ranking included a record 28 jurisdictions. Alongside the Index, we also presented the second annual Caribbean Renewable Energy Marketplace, a comprehensive database on planned and existing renewable projects in the region, including costs, technology, and planned completion dates for each project. This year’s Marketplace includes information on more than 300 projects.

Castalia's presentation continues to be a hallmark of CREF (held this year in Miami, Florida). Cristina Cano (Manager and Head of our Bogota, Colombia office) and Tim Kennedy (Senior Analyst) presented the Index and Marketplace. Their presentation was followed by a panel conversation on developing renewable energy projects in the Caribbean. The panelists, which included Nils Janson (Executive Vice President), used the Castalia presentation as the foundation for their discussion on challenges and advances in project development in the region.

Most of the information that we use for the Index comes directly from governments and utilities throughout the Caribbean—thanks to all those who provided information! If you are a Caribbean government or utility, help us improve the Index in future years by sending your relevant information to With it, we can ensure the most accurate and up-to-date information is available for calculation of next year's results.
