It’s no secret that Caribbean islands are facing increasing challenges due to their dependence on imported fossil fuels. With energy prices reaching 35 to 55 US cents per kilowatt, per hour, the real challenge is how to get energy costs down.

The Carbon War Room is working to help island nations that want to accelerate the development of renewables or remove the use of fossil fuels entirely. Not only are these damaging to the planet, but reliance on fossil fuels also has a huge impact on the cost of just about everything for the people living on the islands.

Fortunately, the Carbon War Room has embarked on a Ten Island Renewable Challenge to tackle these problems head on and is seeing full support from islanders.
