What did the first ever Caribbean Clean Energy Technology Symposium look like to an environmental engineering professor from the University of South Florida who comes from the Caribbean region, who is very much engaged with sustainability and education there, and who sits on the advisory board of the Caribbean Green Technology Center at the University of the Virgin Islands? CCETS was held in St. Thomas from March 24th to March 27th, and came right after the first Caribbean clean energy summit led by Vice President Biden in early 2015.
