Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), has set an ambitious renewable energy (RE) target of 10% of installed capacity by 2021. This equates to approximately 200 MW given the combined installed capacity of the two islands is over 2000 MW of natural gas based power generation. T&T is the only nation in the western hemisphere, and the second in the world, that generates 100%… Continue reading Weighing in on T&T’s 10% RE Target
Recently, two new wind farms (Wigton III and BMR) were commissioned onto the Jamaican electricity grid with a combined capacity of 60 megawatts (MW). This pushes the paradise Island beyond the 100 MW mark, now having total installed capacity of 102 MW. The Wigton III Wind FarmWigton III is a 24 MW wind farm owned and operated… Continue reading Jamaica Surpasses 100 MW of Wind Power
Jamaica is currently leading the English speaking Caribbean in the use of renewable energy (RE) at the commercial level and will probably continue to do so for some time to come. This statement is based in one part on its current installed capacity of 72 Megawatts (MW) and the other on the 78 MW that… Continue reading Ten Companies go Head to Head to Supply RE in Jamaica
Nevis, the sister isle of St. Kitts, is on its way to becoming carbon neutral in the near future. The two-island state is part of the Leeward Islands chain in the Eastern Caribbean. The small island of Nevis is home to a population of about 12,000 and it receives approximately 90 percent of its energy… Continue reading Greening Nevis Electricity Sector
The motivation to start xenogy really originated out of my love for and interest in energy - clean, renewable and sustainable energy - and thus the name.

Technology giant Apple Inc. has push the notch further with one of its later patent application, "ON-DEMAND GENERATION OF ELECTRICITY FROM STORED WIND ENERGY ". The intended objective of Apple's proposal is to address the variability associated with the present wind energy production method. The system proposes to generates electricity via the use of a… Continue reading Apple’s Wind Energy Storage Soln.
Jamaica currently leads the Caribbean in wind energy integration, boasting an installed capacity of 41.93MW (Megawatts). Its latest addition to the national grid being the Munro Find Farm, completed in September 2010. The Munro Wind Farm is a 3MW power plant, own and operates by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo.). The plant consisting of… Continue reading Jamaica Leads with 41.93 (MW)
