Most small island developing States (SIDS) are net energy importers and utilize mainly fossil energy sources to drive their economies and meet social needs.

In 2016, the International Monitory Fund (IMF) estimated that transportation accounted for 36 per cent of the total primary energy consumed in the Caribbean subregion. This information highlights the importance of increasing energy efficiency in the transportation sector as one of several strategies to improve sustainability.
