To Design a Renewable Energy Generation System For the ECCB Headquarters and To Provide Project Management Services
The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) is in the implementation stage of a “Greening of Our Campus Project”. This Project falls under our strategic priority of Enhancing Organisational Effectiveness and aims to achieve carbon neutrality and to significantly reduce electricity costs. It is envisioned that the Project will be used as a model for the use of renewable energy across the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.
There are four significant buildings on the ECCB’s Headquarters located at Bird Rock Road, Basseterre, St Kitts - the Hon Sir K Dwight Venner Building (Phase 1), the Sir Errol N Allen Cafeteria Building (Cafeteria), the Phase 2 Building (Phase 2) and the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium (Auditorium). The four buildings use approximately 3,344,000 kWh per annum.
The Project focuses on:
- The improvement in energy conservation habits;
- The replacement of energy inefficient plant and equipment; and
- The generation of electricity from renewable energy.
The Project is in line with the Paris Agreement, a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC https://unfccc.int/2860.php) dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation and adaptation, adopted by consensus in December 2015.
