“JAMPRO was an asset in getting our company started and also by providing connections with the necessary regulatory, government and private sector organizations.” - Blue Mountain Renewable
Jamaica is receiving international attention for its liberalised energy industry. It is therefore no surprise that we continue to attract investors and have grown from a handful of entities to over 10 public and private energy producers.
Currently, our power sources range from petroleum products to alternative energy sources including hydropower, wind, solar and bagasse. However, our government is committed to further diversifying the sector into a mix of energy sources and by 2030, renewable energy will account for at least 30% of that mix.
Through our industry regulatory body, the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR), Jamaica remains committed to developing a sustainable energy framework that ensures a transparent and equitable representation for all our stakeholders.
Important Note: All energy related projects are undertaken strictly through a bidding process coordinated by the Jamaican Government. All tenders are processed through the Generation Procurement Entity (GPE), an entity under the Ministry of Science, Energy & Technology (MSET).
