• Solving the U.S. Virgin Islands Energy Crisis

    Empower.vi presents a solution to the U.S.Virgin Island's Energy Crisis. Ben Walter a resident of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands presents a plan to install 300 megawatts of Offshore Floating Wind Turbines directly off the South Shore of St. Croix near the shutdown (February 2012) Hovensa Oil refinery. The planned wind farm can be fully financed solely by redirecting significantly less than the in excess of $400 million that the U.S. Virgin Islands expends on purchasing fossil fuels each year (WAPA $200M and road transportation $200M), which could otherwise finance the capital investment. Fuel costs that will no doubt increase significantly over the coming months, and forever bring uncertainty to the territory as it remains beholden to those who control those resources. O...

The refinery is one of the islands' biggest employers. More than 2.000 people are losing their jobs because the refinery on St. Croix is shutting down. It is a double blow to St. Croix, which is already facing government cutbacks. Al Jazeera’s Andy Gallacher reports from St. Croix.

Fuel costs that will no doubt increase significantly over the coming months, and forever bring uncertainty to the territory as it remains beholden to those who control those resources. Offshore floating wind technology is in use today by Norway who have been the pioneers in placing and running successfully for the last two years a floating 2.3 megawatt wind turbine. The race for floating wind farms is on across the world, since this technology is projected to be much less expensive than undertaking the placement of underwater foundations and building towers from the sea floor up. Now the the State of Maine is leading the way, in a project spearheaded by Dr. Habib Dagher, and has laid out their energy road map adopting floating wind technology that includes putting in place a 500 megawatt floating wind farm (half the strength of a nuclear power plant) by 2020 and be producing 5,000 megawatts by 2030. Ben Walter hopes the government of the U.S. Virgin Islands will adopt a proposal using the State of Maine initiative and technology to place a 300 MW farm that will bring energy independence to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The US Virgin Islands (UVI) are eligible for EPSCOR funding as they receive only a small percentage of grants awarded by US agencies. Many universities in Florida, including USF, have established 3+2 programs that permit UVI students to earn an engineering degree after doing 3 years in the math and science department there. Most other Caribbean islands also do not have engineering training programs on island. Water provision and energy provision surely need engineering support in each island.
