CHENACT is an Energy Efficiency project originally financed by: IDB, GTZ, CDE, UNEP, BL&P, BHTA and Government of Barbados. It was implemented by the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) and the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) through its initiative, the Caribbean Alliance for Sustainable Tourism (CAST).

CHENACT’s goal is to improve the competitiveness of the small and medium sized hotels (less than 400 rooms) in the Caribbean through more affordable and predictable energy costs, through improved use of energy with the emphasis on Renewable Energy and Micro-Generation, while assisting Caribbean governments meet their international obligations in emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and phase-out of ozone depleting substances (ODS).

CHENACT began with an initial pilot Phase I, which was conducted in December 2009 to October 2010 in Barbados. A second Phase significantly expanded the number of audits. The project has included over 200 full hotel audits and walk-thru hotel assessments primarily in Barbados, Jamaica, and The Bahamas. Additional audits have been conducted on St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and Grenada.
