The acclaim for Mr. Powell came when OAS Representative to St. Kitts and Nevis Mr. Starret Greene, delivered a presentation of Energy Audit Findings and recommendations during Nevis’ week of activities in observation of Caribbean Energy Week. The function was held on November 12, 2012, at the Llewellyn Newton Disaster Management Facility at Long Point.
“He [Minister Powell] has been front and centre of all the energy related programmes and initiatives that have been jointly undertaken by the OAS, in cooperation with the Government of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, working through the local Nevis Island Administration.
“Minister Powell’s unwavering support for the development of renewable energy on Nevis and the leadership he has provided in this area, has won the applause of the OAS officials in our Department of Sustainable Development (DSD). Mr. Minister, please accept my organisation’s appreciation and satisfaction for your sincere collaboration and continued cooperation,” he said.
