Tuvalu to go carbon neutral by 2020

The Pacific island state of Tuvalu is planning to generate all its energy from renewable sources by

2020, the BBC has reported. Public Utilities Minister, Kausea Natano, said his nation of 12,000 people

wanted to set an example to others. The government hopes to use wind and solar power to generate

electricity, instead of imported diesel, Natano said. “We look forward to the day when our nation offers

an example to all – powered entirely by natural resources such as the sun and the wind,” Natano was

quoted saying.
