By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On February 27, 2023, the European Union (EU) handed over IT equipment to the Energy Unit in the Ministry for Public Utilities, Energy, Logistics and E-governance (MPUELE) in Belize to support its modernization process.
Aniceto Rodriguez, Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation in Jamaica, which also covers Belize, presented the equipment to Jose Urbina, Chief Executive Officer of the Ministry.
The equipment is valued at approximately $200,000 BZ.
The donation consists of 45 IT devices, including energy meters, air and water quality meters, GPS, solar installation efficiency recorders, laptops, and cameras, among others.
The gift forms part of the Sustainable Energy Roadmap Programme funded by the 11th European Development Fund.
Rodriguez noted that the Ministry’s ongoing modernization is evident in its new office in Belmopan and the capacity building now underway for its expanding staff.
The collaborative effort between the Government of Belize and the European Union aims to support the population’s access to electricity and the country’s transition to renewable energy sources.
The Ministry says that it is collaborating closely with Technical Assistance funded by the EU to enhance the capacity for energy efficiency, renewable technologies, and policy planning.
