CARICOM Regional Electric Vehicle Strategy and Framework

This framework seeks to provide the building blocks of a more detailed strategy for the electric mobility transition in the Caribbean region. The aim, strategic imperatives and strategic initiatives from which the REVs will be based are presented.

The Regional Electric Vehicle Strategy (REVS) aims to specifically catalyse the deployment of electric vehicles across all modes of transportation in the Caribbean, while acknowledging the urgent need for comprehensive changes in the transport systems, driving behaviours and mobility preferences of the Caribbean people. The transport sector is a significant contributor to economic development and is increasingly linked with the energy sector, which has prompted an era of disruption ignited by emerging transport technologies and changing stakeholder requirements.

As Caribbean countries pursue the transition towards a sustainable, efficient and effective transportation sector, the accompanying successful delivery of future transport services will be driven by three main disruptors: (1) Electrification, (2) Connectivity through Digitalisation and (3) Shifting and Managing Transport Demand.
