Fernando de Noronha: 100% Renewable Energy Island

Creating an Action Plan

Fernando de Noronha EV Charging

In July 2017, the project’s organizing partners convened a delegation of ten U.S. experts to visit Fernando de Noronha for a series of site visits to gain a deeper understanding of the island’s energy, water, and waste systems and to spot opportunities for integrating these systems into a 100% renewable energy future that balances economic benefit and stewardship of natural resources
The delegation also attended several hours of working group discussions with approximately 30 Brazilian experts with the aim of collaborating on an initial action for the island’s transition to 100% renewable energy.
