Charlestown, Nevis (Thursday, July 19, 2012) — Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry and his NRP-led Nevis Island Administration (NIA) has been applauded by officials of the Bill Clinton Climate Change Initiative for the NIA’s thrust for a “Green Nevis”.
“I am very pleased that former US President Bill Clinton has set up a Foundation to assist small island states to become conscious of renewable energy”, said Premier Parry, adding, “I am even more pleased that the Foundation is willing to lend their expertise on development of the geothermal project which will assist Nevis to go green.”
Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, the Hon. Carlisle Powell and Permanent Secretary Mr. Ernie Stapleton on Tuesday, joined Premier Parry and a visiting delegation from the Clinton Climate Change Initiative led by Councilor, Jan Hartke and Ambassador Paolo Zampolli at the Bath Hotel Conference Room to discuss the work already done by the NIA to move away from fossil to alternative energy on Nevis.
Councilor Hartke said he was extremely happy to see the commitment by the Government in actively pursuing geothermal energy on Nevis.
