Zum Inhalt

This academic contribution offers a stimulating and thought- provoking outlook on transboundary electricity interconnection in the Caribbean. Energy law has become extremely complex in recent times, and many times one must take an interdisciplinary approach.

It is written in an easy- to- understand style, with clear end- of- chapter summaries which assist the reader to assimilate the information.

Key features include:

  • Comparison between two regions, which uses the North Sea legal framework as a model to plan future physical transboundary infrastructure in the Caribbean region
  • Presents convincing advantages of electricity interconnection
  • Provides an overview of similarities and differences in both regions’ institutional structures: CARICOM and European Union
  • Proposes interconnection routes within CARICOM nation states
  • Considers the role competition, investment financing, regulation, and governance play in the development and expansion of transboundary electricity infrastructure
  • Submits an abstract multilateral treaty

It is a comparative study which explores the benefits of electricity interconnection both in the North Sea and Caribbean region. The North Sea legal framework for electricity interconnection is used as a template to guide the discourse as to how long- term transnational grid development could be achieved in the Caribbean region.

The advantages of implementing a multilateral treaty at the onset of this transboundary project instead of having a collage of bilateral agreements are highlighted. This abstract multilateral treaty for the Caribbean is drafted to combat disadvantages of fragmented laws which ultimately hinder progress and advancement of large- scale projects.

For readers without much experience with either the European Union or CARICOM, the author offers a chapter which briefly explains the institutional structure and functioning of the European Union and CARICOM, and their respective energy policies.

Designed to serve as an academic contribution to the topic of Caribbean electricity network interconnection; to motivate readers to explore into the possibility of interconnection within CARICOM nation states; and devise effectual ways in making this a reality.
