On the 4th of August last year, the Republic of China on Taiwan and the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis signed an agreement for the Renewable Energy Dispatch Project. The objective of this project is for the Republic of China on Taiwan to assist the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis in the promotion and development of renewable energy and enhancement of related professional expertise of its citizens in the field.
The Republic of China on Taiwan has provided us with a Project Manager to help with the management, planning, and coordination of the project. This person, Mr. Alex Lai, joined the staff of the Energy Unit in the Ministry at the beginning 2022 as the Renewable Energy Consultant.
Mr. Lai’s agenda includes conducting workshops on renewable energy strategy and training courses for renewable energy capacity building. So far, he has conducted workshops on battery storage and utility-scale wind farms. He has also made contributions to the other projects that the Energy Unit is involved in.
