The Energy Transition Initiative’s island energy snapshots highlight the energy landscape of islands in the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the surrounding areas, which have some of the world’s highest electricity prices in the world. Like many islands around the globe, the featured islands are heavily reliant on fossil fuels for electricity generation, leaving them vulnerable to global oil price fluctuations that directly impact the cost of electricity.

Click on an island on the map above or download its snapshot below to learn more about its electricity sector, clean energy policy environment, energy efficiency and renewable energy projects and resource potential, and opportunities for clean energy transformation to reduce its dependence on imported fossil fuels. Also check out the Islands Energy Playbook, which provides a readily available framework that any community can use to help successfully initiate, plan, and complete a transition to a clean energy system.
