As part of this edition of Caribbean Journal’s Country in Focus feature, we take a look at the island of Nevis, which is moving to the forefront of the Caribbean’s green sector, with a drive in both eco-tourism and green energy. Nevis already has an established wind farm, along with a geothermal project with serious potential. The project, by West Indies Power, could potentially provide energy for the entire federation of St Kitts and Nevis. The island, which is anchored by the Four Seasons Resort, is one of the untouched frontiers of the Caribbean. Nevis, which once drove the Caribbean with sugarcane, now hopes its green movement can prove to be a similar economic engine.
