OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

Even as the South American country of Guyana gears up to become a significant oil producer in the region with estimates of daily output reaching 1 million bpd by 2030, focus remains on lowering dependence on fossil fuel, in keeping with the nation’s green agenda.

“The Government is committed to working with the private sector in ensuring that Guyana transitions to a green economy, in keeping with the vision articulated in our Green State Development Strategy (GSDS): Vision 2040,” Ndibi Schwiers, Director of the Department of Environment, told a forum in Georgetown on Thursday.

Schwiers was at the time speaking at a stakeholder engagement forum held between her department and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), for businesses interested in making investments in the renewable energy sector.

She said through the GSDS, Guyana is expected to transition to near 100% renewable energy, amongst other important strategic actions, but “these actions are not possible without partnership. Today is therefore, an excellent opportunity for you to partner with us as we move towards the transition of a low carbon resilient economy.”

The official said the Government and the GGGI have collaborated on several initiatives that will significantly impact Guyana’s development. One of those projects is the technical and economic analysis of renewable energy solutions for Linden, Anna Regina, Bartica, Lethem, Wakenaam and Leguan.

Among the participants were representatives of beverage company Banks DIH Limited, Gafsons Industries Limited, Massy Group and the Giftland Mall.
