The St Kitts and Nevis government says it has
ramped up its pursuit of geothermal energy as it
seeks to expand renewable energy alternatives.
Minister of Energy Ian Liburd says there are plans
to conduct feasibility study in St Kitts, to establish
the potential of geothermal energy.
In Nevis, the development of geothermal has passed
the exploratory drilling stage. The government said
it would be prudent to establish the potential of the
geothermal resource on the mainland and see how
best it could be developed.
"Geothermal development is a key factor, as well
as moving forward to establishing such resource on
St Kitts, without retarding the progress of the geot-
hermal development on Nevis," Liburd said.
The country s energy policy is being revised to
address the energy demands in St Kitts and Nevis.
"The government is looking at the legislation and
bringing it up to speed to deal with feeder tariffs,
geothermal development and other renewable energy
resources," Liburd explained.
