National Energy is seeking to attract investments in the following areas :
National Energy is developing a Solar Energy Park project to establish a high-technology manufacturing sector in Trinidad and Tobago. This Solar Energy Park comprises four plants:

  • - Metallurgical silicon
  • - Polysilicon
  • - Integrated Photovoltaic (PV) Manufacturing
  • - Float Glass

The Phase 1 development of the Park consists of an integrated PV and float glass plants. Following a detailed feasibility study, the results showed that based on criteria such cost of production, market potential and return on investment, Trinidad and Tobago is a viable option to consider for investment.

Value Drivers

The proposed plants can operate independently, but there are synergies and cost advantages in co-locating the plants. The country’s value drivers include available land for the investment, access to ports for supply chain logistics, competitive electricity rates, skilled labour force (leveraging on the country’s experience within the oil and gas industry), internal country solar generation PV demand.

The bottom line is that Trinidad and Tobago’s mission to support the renewable energy markets can be achieved with the right player seeking to lower production costs and access to markets in the Caribbean and the Americas.

Overall Project :

Phase 1 :

In 2016, Trinidad exported approximately 4.6 million metric tonnes of methanol. National Energy is desirous of developing the downstream opportunities from methanol such as:

  • - Acetic Acid
  • - Formaldehyde
  • - Polyethylene
  • - Polypropylene
  • - Propylene Oxide

Other potential areas for investment include acrylates, acrylic acid and oxoalcohols. In addition to the areas listed above, National Energy welcomes alternative proposals that can be of mutual interest.
National Energy has been focusing on developing linkages between the energy and manufacturing sectors in order to maximise on the full value of our resources. Currently, the downstream chemicals produced in Trinidad and Tobago from ammonia and methanol are urea ammonia nitrate (UAN) and melamine. National Energy is interested in pursuing the advancement of energy-based manufacturing industries firstly based on methanol and ammonia and their derivatives to produce consumables such as, but not limited to, plasticizers, coatings, adhesives, laminates and pharmaceuticals.
In 2016, Trinidad exported approximately 4.6 million metric tonnes of ammonia. National Energy is desirous of developing downstream opportunities from ammonia.
Trinidad and Tobago is desirous of developing an inorganic chemical industry to further diversify the downstream energy sector. As such, National Energy is seeking to attract and work with companies interested in developing an inorganic facility. Raw materials from Trinidad and Tobago or the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) region can be sourced for inorganic chemical projects. For example, ammonia, methanol, limestone and natural gas are available in the country and region and can be utilized for setting up integrated plants within the complex. The economics of an integrated or standalone inorganic chemical plant is enhanced by competitive electricity rates, as electricity is one of the major operating costs. Please note that for all projects which are recommended for further development, consideration is given to various factors, such as market outlet/envisaged market share, technology compatibility, rate of returns and the impact on the environment.
