Renewable-energy data now available on PCJ’s website Published: Monday | February 4, 2013 Comments 0

As the push to open up Jamaica’s renewable-energy supply market continues, the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) is making an extensive range of data available for interested parties.

The PCJ is currently publishing its wide-ranging collection of information on its website. The data include scientific and analytical information on Jamaica’s renewable energy potential. The studies date as far back as the 1970s and cover several areas including hydro, wind, bio-fuels, biomass and solar.

The PCJ anticipates that the information will be valuable to prospective energy suppliers, particularly entities responding to the recent request for proposals from the Office of Utilities Regulation for the provision of 115 megawatts of electricity-generating capacity from renewable sources.

“The development of Jamaica’s renewable-energy market is critical for addressing the country’s energy challenges and the PCJ is committed to facilitating the growth of this fledgling industry,” said Dr Peter Ruddock, the PCJ’s manager, renewable energy.

“The PCJ has the most extensive collection of information on renewable-energy sources and this data is being made available so any prospective suppliers can hit the ground running,” he added.

The data are currently being published on the PCJ’s website: Until the full collection is available electronically, interested persons can visit the PCJ’s library at 36 Trafalgar Road in New Kingston.
