Drive to tap wind energy


Share post:

Barbados’ energy sector is set for major transformation with the introduction of wind energy generation facilitated by the Barbados National Oil Company Limited (BNOCL), in conjunction with the National Petroleum Corporation (NPC).

The initiative is expected to reduce energy costs to average Barbadians.

The wind generation project funded by the Inter-American Development Bank has commenced with a detailed wind study of key sites through a partnership with Barlovento Recursos Naturales from Spain.

It will also involve community outreach and town hall sessions to engage with key stakeholders regarding the initiative’s potential benefits and impacts.  (SP/PR)
