The Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator (CCSA) has announced that it has signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Blue Planet Alliance, a group of organisations working to create a world where humans and nature can coexist harmoniously. The mission of the Blue Planet Alliance is to encourage islands and countries around the world to legislatively mandate a commitment to 100% renewable energy by 2045. The group is constantly expanding and working toward what the CCSA considers a common aim.

The collaboration between the Accelerator and Blue Planet Alliance is a crucial step towards achieving our objectives of accelerating the energy transition in the Caribbean and establishing the region as a climate-smart zone. Through this collaboration, we aim to exchange ideas, share best practices, and even connect with potential suppliers who can contribute to our efforts. By working hand-in-hand with Blue Planet, we can tap into their expertise and experience, accelerating the progress of renewable energy projects and sustainable transportation initiatives. This partnership not only facilitates the transfer of knowledge but also creates a platform for networking and collaboration among stakeholders in the Caribbean energy sector. Together, we drive the implementation of innovative solutions, promoting the growth of clean energy industries and facilitating sound public and private investments. Through our collaborative action, we are well-positioned to generate 90% of electricity from renewable resources and electrify the transport sector by 2035, ultimately transforming the Caribbean’s economy and fostering resilience in the face of climate change.

Henk Rogers has played a significant role in Hawaii’s energy transition, making notable contributions that serve as a blueprint for the potential of relentless action. As the founder of the Blue Planet Alliance and a prominent advocate for renewable energy, Rogers has been at the forefront of promoting sustainability and clean energy adoption in Hawaii. Through his efforts, he has successfully driven the state’s commitment to renewable energy by spearheading the deployment of solar power, energy storage, and electric vehicles. By championing renewable energy projects and advocating for policy changes, Rogers has showcased how determined action can lead to tangible results. His initiatives not only demonstrate the feasibility of transitioning to a cleaner and more sustainable energy landscape but also inspire others to take action and follow a similar path. With his vision and unwavering dedication, Rogers has not only transformed Hawaii’s energy sector but has also provided a blueprint for how relentless action and collaborative efforts can drive meaningful change in energy transition initiatives worldwide, as exemplified by the founding of the Blue Planet Alliance.

Looking For New Partners

The Alliance has a wider, macro purpose that all participants share: a vision of a harmonious planet. Our Memorandum of Understanding demonstrates our commitment to promote harmony and environmental sustainability. This Alliance has 75 partners, forming an even wider collective to promote these principles. To this end, the Blue Planet Alliance is continually looking for partners to join; the more organisations that become part of our alliance, the stronger our voice when it comes to eliminating fossil fuels and powering our lives with renewable energy.  If you’d like to join the alliance, click here.
