Jamaica Makes Energy Index Improvement

The Global Energy Architecture Performance Index Report for 2017 is now out and Jamaica has shown significant improvement in its ranking on the index.

The index ranks 127 countries on their ability to deliver secure, affordable, and sustainable energy.

According to Prime Minister Andrew Holness, Jamaica’s ranking rose from 166 to 92 in 2017.

Holness noted that Jamaica’s improved ranking placed it among the 127 countries making significant strides in energy sector performance since 2009.

He made the disclosure on Friday at the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of  a US$330 million 190 megawatt power plant, dubbed the Renaissance Project, at Old Harbour Bay in St.Catherine.
