Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and the Carbon War Room (CWR)assisted St. Lucia to develop a sustainable energy roadmap for a secure electricity future by working collaboratively with the Government of St. Lucia and St. Lucia Electricity Services (LUCELEC)—the nation’s sole electric utility.

Who is RMI-CWR?
RMI-CWR is an independent, non-profit organisation that engages utilities, governments, businesses, and communities to accelerate the transition of island economies from heavy dependence on fossil fuels to a diversified portfolio of renewables and energy efficiency. RMI-CWR is comprised of experts in integrated energy resource planning, cost-benefit analysis, and strategic project development and implementation. RMI-CWR works with countries globally, including Anguilla, Aruba, Bahamas, Montserrat, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Turks and Caicos.

“We recognize that a successful evolution of our power sector to renewables cannot happen without the participation of the existing electricity utility, LUCELEC. This study reinforces our belief.”
--Hon. Stephenson King, Minister of Energy, Saint Lucia.

Grenada’s solutions may be different, but the method used in the St. Lucia Energy Roadmap is an excellent model.
Grenlec believes that St. Lucia's collaborative approach is a pragmatic and sustainable method for developing energy solutions to control electricity costs, diversify the nation’s energy portfolio, and contribute to a prosperous, low-carbon future in a way that is fair to customers and the utility.

Missed Opportunity?
Having embarked on a similar process as St. Lucia, the Government of Grenada has now withdrawn from the collaboration with Grenlec and others — including RMI-CWR. Grenlec believes that a collaborative approach better supports prudent, sustainable reform of our energy sector to accelerate development of renewable resources in a manner that will benefit all our citizens.
