THE EDITOR, Madam:
The energy crisis fuelled by the war in Ukraine has served to painfully remind us of our vulnerability as a nation in this area. It is also a time to reflect and ask ourselves, could we have done more over the years in making better use of solar power?
To my mind, the University of Technology should have been the foremost Caribbean voice in this arena, leading both in research, in the development of the technology, and in advocacy. High schools should have been encouraged to enter competitions relating to the use of solar energy. It seems to me that we could have done much more.
However, with this crisis staring us in the face, we have no alternative but to double our efforts to utilise the blessing of year-round sunshine.
