The Hon Marco Archer, MLA, Minister of Finance & Economic Development and the Hon. Wayne Panton, MLA, Minister of Financial Services, Commerce and Environment at the Carbon War Room's Creating Climate Wealth Summit on Moskito Island, BVI.
The Carbon War Room's Mission states 'Islands face increasing challenges from their dependence on imported fossil fuels, which impacts the prices they pay for everything from electricity to food. This is further complicated by the added demand that tourism places on the island’s resources. Natural energy resources are abundant on islands. However, the systems required to use them have not been widely implemented and scaled.
