An energy expo focusing on a national shift in behaviour towards efficient uses of energy and greater conservation methods, is to be held between April 7 and 8 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, in New Kingston.

The Fourth  annual Jamaica Alternative Energy Expo is being organised by Events and Entertainment Limited and sponsored by the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ), for the third consecutive year.

Some 40 exhibitors from local and international commercial, academic and government entities involved in the energy industry are expected to participate.

The two-day event is also expected to feature workshops and presentation sessions, aimed at household energy consumers, business operators, students, academics and industry professionals as well as the general public.

“The PCJ has aligned itself to this event as it is an effective vehicle for increasing public awareness about renewable energy solutions,” said Manager of Information and Corporate Affairs, Camille Taylor, in a JIS News interview.

“The company is aware that although numerous consumers are contemplating the use of renewable energy, the technology and even the terminologies are still relatively new,” she added.

Tips, advice and easy-to-understand information will be provided by the PCJ, which should help consumers to select the most appropriate renewable energy technology or systems to meet their needs.

Energy efficiency experts will also be available to explain steps that householders and business operators can take to reduce their energy bills.
