Did BREA drop the ball?
THE BARBADOS RENEWABLE Energy Association (BREA) has come under criticism for not seeing the agriculture sector as a partner in the renewable energy thrust.
This rebuke is coming from chief executive officer of the Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS), James Paul, who said BREA seemed to be giving the pig industry a cold shoulder when it came to exploring the benefits of pig manure as a source of renewable energy.
He said many sources of renewable energy could be found in Barbados but they were not tapped.
“To my mind, we don’t need to look around outside of Barbados to see what needs to be done. There are very simple things here that involve real people that we can touch . . . to actually to help to make their lives better and more effective. I think that is where we can find the kind of support to see the take-off in renewable energy options that we need,” Paul added. (TSG)
