Energy Development
in Island Nations

Ha'Penny Beach October Sunset

December 12, University of Virgin Islands, St. Thomas

Almost three years ago, the U.S. Virgin Islands, with the promised help of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, set out to reduce fossil fuel consumption 60 percent by the year 2025. The islands have since made significant progress. 

Energy project developers will give the public an update on that progress at this day-long workshop. Speakers will also address upcoming Initiatives of the Caribbean Green Technology Center and the Water and Power Authority’s ViEnergize Business Services Unit.

To attend please RSVP to Lucy Estephane at lucy.estephane@eo.vi.gov or call 713.8436, St. Croix or Molissa Brin, 714-8436, St. Thomas.

If you are a vendor or resident who would like to highlight a project completed in the last three years, contact Don Buchanan at don.buchanan@eo.vi.gov.  The Energy Office is producing a slideshow that will highlight the efforts in the private sector.


  1. When you write a blog post and no one comments, it feels like no one cares. But I do care. The first house my husband and I built in St John in 1995 we were off grid and happily using solar for lights and fridge. I am living in Florida now but will move back some day soon and I like to keep up on the off grid progress in the Islands. A discussion section would be great.

  2. Gypsy, thanks for your comment. I am trying to bring this Blog back to life.
