LUCELEC: Waste to Energy project principals met

Lucelec Managing Director Trevor Louisy says the company is not averse to the idea.

Representatives of Island Green Energy and Elementa, the companies spearheading the proposed waste to energy plant at Deglos, met with LUCELEC formally on Thursday (January 20).
The meeting discussed the scope of the project and the requirements for advancing the project.  Some of these include licensing and a power purchase agreement, since under the Electricity Supply Act LUCELEC has an exclusive license to generate electricity for distribution. Other requirements related to relevant permits and DCA approvals, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and guarantees for the delivery of a minimum amount of garbage to the land fill daily.
LUCELEC Managing Director Trevor Louisy assured the representatives of Island Green Energy and Elementa that LUCELEC was not opposed to the waste to energy project.    However, he noted, LUCELEC was obligated to ensure that this project or any other alternative energy projects designed to feed into the national electricity grid were consistent with the guidelines in the National Energy Policy approved by Cabinet and the requirements of the Electricity Supply Act.
LUCELEC views the development of alternative and renewable energy as critical to ensuring energy security, sustainability and fuel diversification to reduce the country’s current dependence on fossil fuels for electricity generation given the volatility of oil prices and our vulnerability in the region to these prices.
The representative of the GOSL present at the meeting committed to ensuring that the necessary meetings were facilitated.
