Smart Island Economies: the 10 Island Renewable Challenge
Description/achievement of initiative

Carbon War Room and Rocky Mountain Institute are leading a joint effort to unlock opportunities to scale renewable energy projects across the Caribbean. This work was accelerated on Necker Island three weeks ago with commitments from the British Virgin Islands, Colombia, Dominica, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Tucks & Caicos to join the Ten Island Renewable Challenge, and fast-track individual projects to demonstrate sustainability solutions on islands. Government representatives from thirteen Caribbean countries convened with CEOs and executives from over thirty corporations and institutions to build projects and support networks for this work.
