The IRRP is a planning tool that is being developed with the assistance and support of the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE). The IRRP under development for the Government of Belize is facilitated by financial support from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and technical support from the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), through the TAPSEC Project. The IRRP is a plan for how a country can supply their need for electricity, in the future (demand forecasting). The plan will ensure reliable sources of power, minimize negative impacts on the environment and enhance the resilience of power systems to hazards and risks, while minimizing costs to consumers. Building resilience in this way guarantees energy security, as the Caribbean seeks to adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The IRRP aims to develop local capacity in the topic of energy planning and forecasting.
