the project

context

Today, 95% of the electricity in Barbados is generated from imported fossil fuel.

The government of Barbados has a set 100% renewable energy target by 2030.

 

Due to the intermittent nature of solar and wind power, this 100% renewable energy vision can only be achieved with renewable baseload powerplants such as RSB.

 

Located in the parish of St Peter, RSB is a large-scale and grid-friendly energy project. It will supply electricity to 21 000 inhabitants with clean, resilient and stable electricity.
