Jamaican Utility Invests $116M in Energy Efficiency Projects
The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ), which is owned by the Jamaican government, has invested about $116 million over 10 years to develop more than 100 energy efficiency projects, reports Jamaicans.com.
The projects, executed between 2004 and 2013, were implemented mainly in government hospitals, schools and other public buildings, said the news source.
An executive from PCJ said the company also conducts research into possible clean energy sources for the island, including hydro-power, wind energy and solar power.
In the British Virgin Islands, Richard Branson is powering his private Necker Island with a renewables-driven micro-grid. Branson wants the project to demonstrate the benefits of renewables for other Caribbean islands.
