Faced with the lack of local conventional energies available, many islands are forced to import and/or use fossil fuels from the continent. These are choices that lead to dependence, which are also often expensive, generating a strong ecological footprint as well as greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change. In other cases, the energy needs of households generate a lot of pressure on local environments and fragile island ecosystems.

One solution is to favour the Island’s natural capital and to promote locally available energy: relying for example on solar energy, wind power, biomass or geothermal energy, using marine energies or fuels generated from terrestrial plants (coconut oil...) and marine plants (phytoplankton).
