GREEN ENERGY PROJECT - Fuamulah Atoll Island, South Maldives
Strategy - governance - cooling
Fuamulah Atoll Island, is planning to achieve in 5 years to become 100% self-sufficient from local renewable energy sources for electricity. The “GREEN ENERGY” project is a community based project to be implemented in south of Maldives.
Project in a Nutshell
Our objective is to become 100% self-sufficient with renewable energies. Fuamulah Island will be the first island among the 200 inhabited islands of Maldives to become 100% self-sufficient with local renewable energy sources for electricity.
The island’s electricity will be produced by 11 offshore wind-turbines.
Replicability: Challenges & Success Factors
Local involvement will be the main success factor of this project: it will be coordinated by a consortium of local stakeholders: the local energy agency, the local development office, the Atoll council of Fuamulah Island and the Atoll council-owned energy company.
Community involvement will also contribute to the project’s positive outcomes, and local ownership will be a keyword in Fuamulah Island’s strategy: 90% of the windmills will be owned by local people.
