The past Tuesday, June 27th, was an inspiring day for the Puerto Rico Energy Consulting Access Program (PRECAP) and Fundación Borincana. In collaboration with Vivo Beach Club, the event “PyMEs and the Energy Transition” was held, bringing together leaders, renewable energy enthusiasts, and small and medium-sized business owners in Puerto Rico to share ideas and knowledge about the vital role of renewable energy in our island’s economic development. The space also served as a meeting place for stakeholders in the public and private sectors of energy and small and medium-sized enterprise entrepreneurship for networking, strengthening support networks, and fostering connections in the energy sector.
The evening featured distinguished speakers, including Josué Rivera, District Director of SBA for Puerto Rico and USVI; Geanette Siberón, Executive Director of Operations at ENVSAFE; Angel Zayas, founder of AZ Engineering and presenter of “Martes Informativo”; and Alejandro Uriarte, founder of reSolient and Board Member of Fundación Borincana. The speakers shared their experience in the field of renewable energy in Puerto Rico and discussed the available opportunities for SMEs. The event was sponsored by AZ Group and reSolient.
PRECAP and Fundación Borincana are committed to continuing to organize events of this nature to share and collaborate towards achieving an energy transformation towards a resilient, sustainable, and prosperous Puerto Rico. The PRECAP program supports small businesses, energy cooperatives, solar communities, and municipalities in preparing and managing their renewable energy projects. PRECAP operates within the SBIA program with CDBG-DR funds from the Department of Housing.
