High energy costs are a major challenge for islands and coastal communities because they face some of the highest electric and heating fuel costs.
Moreover climate change is a real challenge for islands. Indeed the surface temperature of the Earth increased – by 0.6°C ± 0.2°C over the last century. This may not sound like much, but the warming will increase with time, and could have disastrous consequences for islands: densely settled coastal plains would become uninhabitable with just a small rise in sea level, which would result from melting of the ice caps.
That’s why we are very active in the Carribean. We already installed many of our smart metering systems to provide energy efficiency to tertiary buildings.
In November, our team will install our system for a new client in Saint Barth, with minimum 20% of energy consumption reduction objective.
