This report provides an overview of the energy sector, energy policy, and renewable energy and energy efficiency opportunities in Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The report finds that these islands all have great potential for renewable energy and energy efficiency growth. Geothermal, wind, and solar power are abundant on nearly of the islands studied. Furthermore, reliance on imported fuel sources for power and transport provide an even greater incentive for these nations to grow their renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors.
