Reunion Island, an insular region with ambitious renewable goals

Reunion Island, like most insular regions, is ruled by a carbon economy which is heavily dependent on oil, imported by sea. But in recent years, the energy transition has become the watchword of these non-interconnected areas. This results into an increasing implementation of renewable energy sources (RES) in these regions.
In 2012, this island of the southwest Indian Ocean had a renewable electricity production capacity of […]
