Christopher BurgessOn this episode of the podcast we're heading down to the islands! Well, figuratively speaking, at least. Our guest is Christopher Burgess, Director of Projects for the Islands Energy Program, an initiative of the Rocky Mountain Institute and Carbon War Room. We discuss what the Islands Energy Program is and the challenge that spawned it; cover the current energy landscape in the Caribbean; discuss what types of renewables the islands are pursuing and how the Program is working to bring about that transition; discuss what this shift means for the future of local islanders and their economies; and close with Chris' prediction about renewable usage in the islands by 2025.
