Antigua and Barbuda
National Energy Policy
The NEP covers the the power sector, but also cooking and transportation. It seeks a more energy efficient and cleaner road fleet, and enhanced public transport. Tax systems to reduce greenhouse gases emission in the transport sector will be developed by the appropriate ministries.
The NEP was updated in 2013 by the Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP). SEAP intends to serve as a roadmap for the energy future in Antigua and Barbuda from 2010 until 2030, and identify four kind of barriers to overcome: 1) institutional and regulatory barriers, 2) barriers harming energy conservation and energy efficiency targets, 3) barriers harming renewable energy development, and 4) countering low levels of awareness from the people and technical education.

Overall energy intensity at least 10% below 2010 baseline by 2021
Government reducing energy consumption and costs by 30% by 2021 compared with 2011 baseline
Share of renewable energy to be al least: 5% by 2015, 10% by 2020 and 15% by 2030
Improve energy efficiency in the transport sector by 40% through economic incentives to fast track the migration of public and private fossil powered vehicles to low carbon technologies by 2026 compared with 2011 baseline
