This issue looks at the people and organizations who have been working towards making changes to Anguilla’s energy landscape. It also looks at persons in the community who have assumed responsibility for their own energy usage by utilizing smart technology, innovative building materials and local expertise. We also examine the prospect of a ground-breaking renewable energy and sustainable tourism development project which should go a long way to kick-starting a more energy-conscious approach to architecture, as well as provide inspiration for future developments. Finally, we look at practical ways that we can integrate energy efficiency into our buildings from the beginning. Making conscious decisions at the start of the process reduces the need for more radical and expensive retrofits in the future.
