The future of the Caribbean can be bright, thanks largely to plans being implemented now to increase energy security. Donors and multilateral finance institutions are working to put in place new solar, wind, and smart grids. The US Departments of Energy and State are intensively working on a new Caribbean Energy Security Initiative that partners directly with Caribbean governments. Meanwhile, businesses are finding immediate solutions to the urgent economic challenge of costs by replacing oil with natural gas and its derivatives.
