Puerto Rico & Bahamas Delegation to Germany: Decentralized Power Supply

In partnership with the Berlin-based consultancy energiewaechter GmbH, the GACC South is organizing a delegation trip to Germany from July 16th-20th, 2018 on the topic of Decentralized Power Supply through Renewable Energies. This opportunity is aimed specifically at industry representatives of Puerto Rico’s and The Bahamas’ power supply chain and will offer participants the opportunity to engage in an international exchange of knowledge and best practices with leading German companies, industry experts and multipliers.

Due to their precarious geographic locations, both Puerto Rico and The Bahamas are frequently faced with the devastating effects of tropical storms and hurricanes that discharge in the Gulf of Mexico. One of the most harrowing consequences for these regions is the damage caused to the land-based power infrastructure, often leaving thousands without access to basic utilities such as electricity and drinkable water for days or even weeks. The goal of this delegation is to offer companies, institutions, and other decision-makers responsible for powering these regions the opportunity to learn from German best practices in the development of sustainable power grids through diversification and renewable energy solutions.
