An invitation has been made to insurance providers to support the renewable energy sector through investment.
It's coming from executive director of the Barbados Renewable Energy Association, Meshia Clarke.
Ms. Clarke was speaking at the opening of a two day workshop examining the role the insurance and financial services sector can play in developing the renewable energy sector.
She says in light of climate change and its possible devastating effects on the region, more needs to be done to build out the renewable energy sector.
And insurers can play a big part in this development.
Meanwhile, senior advisor with the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative Dirk Kohler encouraged insurers to be open to underwriting new technologies in renewable energy.
