of geothermal resources of St. Lucia under a DOE sponsored program. • Geothermal indicia on St. Lucia comprise a very large solfatara near the village of Soufrière, numerous thermal springs, and very recent volcanic activity including both phreatic and pyroclastic eruptions (Huttrer, ).File Size: 1MB.   Geothermal Resource Development Project. A component of the Saint Lucia Renewable Energy Sector Development Project. THE Government of Saint Lucia (GoSL) has been keen to pursue the development of its geothermal resource for a number of decades with initial efforts dating back to 2 deep wells in ’s SL1(2, m) • Drilled in crater near Belfond Dome,Soufriere • Not productive suggesting poor permeability and convective movement SL2( m) • located in the Sulphur Springs • A gas-rich fluid and the well produced steam • Gas . Its second phase is ongoing and its scope has been expanded to include energy efficiency. St. Lucia is also involved in the Eastern Caribbean Geothermal Development Project (Geo-Caraibes) funded by the OAS. The project addresses the development of geothermal energy on the islands of Dominica, St. Lucia, and St. Kitts and Nevis.

It was an effort to explain general misconceptions about the project, as well as to help the public understand what exactly geothermal energy is and how it will contribute to the island’s development. There was emphasis on the fact that Saint Lucia is only at the phase of geothermal exploration and not actually building a geothermal plant yet.   Determined to shift away from fossil fuels, the island nation of Saint Lucia is turning to solar energy for electricity generation, with a contract signed between electric utility St. Lucia. Thermal Energy Partners (TEP) is a Texas-based geothermal energy company that provides sustainable, baseload, zero carbon, renewable energy. Founded in TEP focuses on geothermal project design, finance, construction, energy production and operation of facilities upon completion. Constitutional framework. Saint Lucia is a constitutional monarchy with the British monarch as head of state, represented by a governor-general. The bicameral parliament consists of the House of Assembly elected by universal adult suffrage and the Senate, with members appointed on the advice of the prime minister.

Thermal input, either of waste heat, or possibly even of heat pumped thermal energy using the island generated electricity to raise the temperature of the surface resource could result in a shorter cold water pipe (CWP) which represents a great proportion of OTEC costs and energy use, allowing more site flexibility to the Energy Island itself. a partnership of experts in marine engineering, applied to all forms of energy available at sea, with a particular interest in Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion. That would make it one of the largest single green energy production facilities in the region, as a percentage of total energy needs. Anthony said St Lucia was also continuing to work with the World Bank, the government of New Zealand and an Israeli geothermal company on a long-awaited geothermal project. by Renewable Energy Caribbean Octo Novem Leave a comment Part of a large-scale inter-island project, part of the European Interreg Caribbean Programme Geothermal Funding, Geothermal, Politics, Saba, St Eustatius, St Kitts-Nevis.
