Electricity in Grenada in 2021

Global Ranking: #197
0.0% #197 Low-carbon electricity
40.94 % #74 Electrification
192.36 watts #130 Generation / person
655.00 gCO2eq/kWh #211 Carbon Intensity

Based on 2021 data, electricity consumption in Grenada is worryingly low. Unfortunately, Grenada lags far behind the global average of 410 watts per person. While detailed energy generation information for Grenada is unavailable, it's safe to assume that the proportion of low-carbon energy sources is regrettable, in sharp contrast to advanced countries that generate hundreds of TWh yearly. Low levels of electricity generation leave most of Grenada's population without access to a regular, reliable power supply, which can negatively impact the local economy, people's quality of life, and their ability to access essential services like healthcare and education.


Grenada can look to countries such as Brazil and Australia as models for increasing low-carbon electricity supply. Both these countries have, despite their different economic contexts, successfully utilized natural resources to generate considerable amounts of clean electricity. Brazil has leveraged its wind resources to provide 94 TWh, while Australia has managed to harness solar energy to provide more than 80 TWh. With Panama's geographical location and tropical climate, there is potential for the country to similarly tap into solar and wind energy sources.


Unfortunately, the history of low-carbon electricity in Grenada has been largely unprogressive. However, data confirming this is absent. Still, it is important to critically analyze any declines in nuclear energy generation, which is an integral part of a balanced, low-carbon energy portfolio. With no historical data to inform us of the trajectory of Grenada's low-carbon electricity generation, the future holds opportunities for expansion and development in this field, including nuclear, wind, and solar energy methods, which have proven to be successful in advancing countries.
