Creating Climate Wealth - Necker Island Summit 2014 Pre-Read

Executive Summary

At Creating Climate Wealth Necker Island, Carbon War Room and Rocky Mountain Institute aim to foster a network in the Caribbean region that accelerates the transformation to energy efficiency and renewable energy. This network can provide supportive learning, aggregate projects to create larger-scale investment opportunities, and generate momentum to rapidly replicate implemented solutions.

By looking at each island nation as a singular system many solutions lose the benefits of scale - resources become diffused, replication becomes difficult, and synergies cannot be leveraged. Instead, working together as a Caribbean system allows us to collaborate, rather than compete for resources; build scale, rather than be disadvantaged by size; amplify resources, rather than overstretch staff; and leverage each other’s networks, rather than dilute knowledge and capital.

CCW Necker will focus on four areas:

  • Hospitals
  • Hotels & Resorts
  • Schools
  • Utility-Scale Generation
