During this week, there will be several activities designed to educate the general public on the importance of energy in our modern lives, energy conservation measures, and highlight the current forms and future options for the provision and use of energy in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

These activities will include a seminar hosted by the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Energy Unit, a competition for young persons, an exhibition featuring information on energy conservation practices and devices, an energy walk, and a number of other television and radio programs.

Head of The energy Unit, Ellsworth Dacon, said that plans are progressing smoothly, and it is anticipated that the week will go a long way towards raising the awareness of the technologies and practices that can result in the nation making some significant savings on its national energy bill.
