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:
- Hotels & Resorts
- Utility-Scale Generation
