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.
