Trinidad Pushes for Shift to Cleaner Fuel | Caribbean360

- By Jewel Fraser PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Tuesday April 4, 2017, (IPS) – The Trinidad and Tobago government has invested about $74 million in the first phase of a $295-million project to encourage more drivers to use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), described by experts here as a preliminary step in the country’s transition to using more sustainable forms of energy. Use of CNG would represent a major behavioural shift for Trinidadians and Tobagonians whose country’s economy has relied heavily on exports of major fossil fuel reserves, giving it one of the highest per capita incomes in CARICOM as well as placing it among the top ten emitters of carbon per capita in the world
