He added, “I took the opportunity to tap into his extensive knowledge as Dominica advances the development of its geothermal resources.”
The government of Dominica is adamant about fulfilling its climate-resilient aim and working tirelessly to reduce its carbon footprint. While working on the reduction of non-renewable sources, the country has been witnessing the construction of a geothermal power plant that drives the country on the path of renewables. The project will power the houses and reduce energy costs and carbon emissions while simultaneously creating jobs.
Dominica, profoundly known as the nature isle of the Caribbean, is a suitable location for geothermal power plants as it is brimming with hot springs, geysers, and volcanic activity where the Earth is particularly hot just below the surface.
