Turks and Caicos Commits to Advancing Renewable Energy

IMG_0082PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands — The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) has deepened its commitment to advancing renewable energy by joining the Carbon War Room’s Ten Island Challenge.

TCI Premier Rufus Ewing and Carbon War Room’s operations director, Justin Locke, signed a memorandum of understanding committing to work together to reduce the island’s dependence on fossil fuels through increased renewable energy production and improved energy efficiency.

The Ten Island Challenge provides the government of the TCI the opportunity and platform to define and realize its own vision of a clean economy. In order to achieve this vision, the Carbon War Room, a global nonprofit founded by Sir Richard Branson, and Rocky Mountain Institute will provide a range of technical, project management, communications and business advisory support services.

“With the addition of Turks and Caicos, the Ten Island Challenge continues to expand its efforts to transform Caribbean economies and help the region achieve independence from fossil fuels,” said Branson.

The Ten Island Challenge works to accelerate the transition of Caribbean island economies from a heavy dependence on fossil fuels to renewable resources. Caribbean economies suffer from some of the highest electricity prices in the world — contributing to their national debts, and slowing efforts toward sustainable development.

Despite an abundance of sun and wind, Caribbean islands have implemented relatively low amounts of renewables to date. The Ten Island Challenge, with partners Carbon War Room and Rocky Mountain Institute, is tackling this by identifying the technical and commercial solutions that can facilitate low-carbon energy use in the Caribbean
