[www.inewsguyana.com] – On the heels of government scrapping the Amaila Falls Hydropower Project, President David Granger has met with a team from Innogen Technologies Incorporated, a company based in Barbados, whose core focus is on the utilisation of energy generated from the sun in households and businesses in the Caribbean.

Chief Executive Officer, Vancourt Rouse explained that the company’s main interest in Guyana is lending support to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Incorporated in lowering the cost of electricity and improving the delivery to various communities, particularly those in remote areas.

“We are looking to help Guyana improve its national competitiveness in certain industries by improving efficiency and cost of energy, which has a very important input in the production of goods and services. So we are looking at the timber industry, rice industry, gold mining operations and the hospitality industry…” Rouse said.

Innogen Technologies Incorporated is part of the One Caribbean Media group (OCM). It has been the leading renewable energy installation company in Barbados since 2010.

Guyana’s Finance Minister Winston Jordan had stated that it would be “criminal” proceed with the Amaila Falls Project that was started under the former People’s Progressive Party/Civic Administration.

The PPP has been very critical of the governments decision contending that the project was a guranteed source of cheap renewable energy for Guyana.

  1. According to Observer the photo is not right. The man to the right is not supposed to be there. It upsets Observer.

  2. The problem with Guyana is that BOTH parties DO NOT have the interest of the PEOPLE in mind.
    When the PPP was in Govt, the PNC did it best to disrupt the progress of Guyana and now the PPP is doing the same thing.
    In the end, its the Guyanese people who suffer and remain impoverished.
    Guyana needs to be divided into 2 nations, only then will the people prosper and improve their quality of life!

  3. Why look for sun and let the hydroelectric project die? Is it because you have no vision on the natral sources and something initiated by the previous government is untouchable?

    Solar energy is not a practical solution for renewable energy and hydro project is the only solution for green energy. Forget about your views while you were in opposition. Now you are ruling Guyana and you should ask scholars in this field. These private companies want to sell some solar pannels and get richer. They are not here to save GPL.

  4. Best wishes on this project. BTW, I do like and appreciate a proper arrangement regards photographs like this one. If I had to arrange where each person would stand it this photograph, I would have made just one change – have the gentleman who is second from the left, go to the extreme right. Of course, you might have an even better arrangement; anyway, this arrangement gets a poor C- from me.
