How Climate Change Will Affect Renewable Energy Adoption in the Caribbean
“How will the Caribbean renewable energy adopters react to climate change?”
Climate change is affecting the world everywhere, but the Caribbean might be one of the most impacted. Their scattered geography makes them reliant on oil imports for energy, only further exacerbated by their aged grid systems in drastic need of repair. Climate change threatens to destroy the livelihood of these nations with worsening rainstorms and hurricanes, as seen in Puerto Rico. Caribbean policymakers are taking proactive measures to prevent further catastrophes by installing distributed renewable energy to increase their nation’s climate resiliency.
