Biography

DEVON GARDNER Programme Manager for Energy and Head of the Energy Unit at the Caribbean Community Secretariat, since September 2014.

Devon has oversight of the Energy Programme, which is tasked with the identification of common policies and strategies for transforming the energy sector within the Caribbean Community. This transformation requires a shift in a majority of the energy systems within the region from their current states of inefficiency and over‑dependence on imported fossil sources, to a state of greater efficiency and high penetration of indigenous renewable sources.

Previously, Devon was a Technical Adviser within the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) and held multiple positions in academia, ranging from Senior Research Fellow to Professor in various universities within the Caribbean and Europe.

Devon has published over fifty (50) peer‑reviewed articles, as well as numerous reports and studies, and received his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Chemical Physics with specialization in numerical analysis, University of the West Indies in 2001.
