Premier Mark Brantley of Nevis has declared the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis’ full commitment to developing geothermal energy as a key national project. Addressing the 10th Geothermal Congress for Latin America and the Caribbean (GEOLAC) in Cartagena, Colombia, Brantley emphasized the importance of geothermal energy in transforming St. Kitts and Nevis into the world’s first sustainable Island State.

During the conference, Premier Brantley participated in two panel discussions. In the first, titled “Breakthrough or Impasse: What does the Future Hold for Geothermal Across Latin America and the Caribbean,” he highlighted the decision to pursue geothermal energy for the benefit of Nevisians and Kittitians. In his second presentation, under the theme “Caribbean: Moving Closer to the End Game,” he called for a shift in the global narrative on renewable energy, advocating for its recognition and financing as a “global public good.”

Premier Brantley stressed the distinction between renewable and fossil fuel energies, noting the former as a step towards saving the planet. Upon returning to Nevis on December 2, 2023, he noted the significant interest from major geothermal players and financial institutions in the Nevis project. He conveyed a powerful message that geothermal energy will provide energy, water, food, and economic security for St. Kitts and Nevis.

The Nevis Island Administration (NIA), in partnership with the Federal Government of St. Kitts and Nevis, is making progress in advancing this project. Plans are underway to finalize the tender process and commence drilling for geothermal energy in 2024.
