Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI)’s Islands Energy Program partners with governments and utilities of small island nations to reduce fossil fuel consumption and assist the transition to a low-carbon economy – with the goal of replicating and scaling this model to significantly reduce the impacts of climate change. CCI also works with islands on post-disaster recovery and increasing resilience through the installation of solar and battery storage microgrids on critical facilities such as schools, clinics, and hospitals. CCI brings on-the-ground experience and convening power to solve unique energy challenges with our three-tiered approach: long-term energy planning, identifying and developing low-risk clean energy projects, and fostering knowledge exchange. CCI currently works with 12 island nations in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean regions to align key stakeholders on optimal energy solutions, to implement renewable energy projects, and to encourage capacity building and gender inclusivity. A core part of the latter component is the Women in Renewable Energy (WIRE) Network, launched by CCI and Chelsea Clinton to empower the next generation of women leaders in island nations. The WIRE Network is a professional development network comprised of a mentoring program and a digital platform with the mission to increase the number of women in leadership positions within the energy sector.
