Eco-Schools Update - August 2014

August update on Eco-Schools from Programme Manager Abbie Caldas.

At the close of the 2013/2014 school year, we have successfully engaged with eight schools to reach step 2 of 7 within the Eco-Schools framework.

In the winter, we participated in various public outreach events: presenting at Pecha Kucha, visiting a school's Earth Hour event, and participating in BZS's Environmental Youth Conference.

Achieving Energy Independence

2014-07-01-solarpowerbarbados-thumb1"Energy independence is not just temporarily producing enough of our own fossil fuels to get by. Real energy independence is freeing ourselves from the addiction to the fossil fuels which are destroying our environment and leaving our economy a hostage to events beyond our borders."

This statement is taken from a recent article in the Huffington Post entitled Why Tiny Barbados Is Beating Us on the Road to Green Energy.

Study concludes Wind Energy viable for Bermuda

A new study of Bermuda's offshore wind has concluded that it is a viable source of renewable energy for Bermuda.

The report states "The results from our wind energy model show that offshore wind energy is an economically viable option. Our calculated LCOE of $0.261/kWh is significantly lower than the price of electricity paid by consumers. A demonstration of our spatial analysis model shows that, for our chosen set parameters, it is possible to site a 100 MW wind farm on the Bermuda platform with minimal risk to marine habitat and fisheries."
