In his address to the Sustainable Energy conference at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on November 10, Prime Minister The Honourable Freundel Stuart announced Barbados' commitment to a strategy to produce all the country's electricity needs from the sun, wind and other renewable sources. When that strategy is complete there will be no need to import fuel to generate electricity. Barbados has joined a select few countries which have taken this bold, forward-looking step. Renewables are the future of our planet, particularly those energy sources like solar and wind that do not produce pollutants, because they do not contribute to global warming.
