Who We Are

All About The DGDC Ltd.

Established and wholly owned by the Government of Dominica.

Our mission is to increase the use of renewable energy in the provision of cheaper electricity by the responsible exploitation of Dominica’s geothermal resource.

Dominica Geothermal Development Company Limited is a special purpose vehicle established by the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica to lead all activities relating to geothermal exploration in Dominica. Registered in December 2016, with a Board of Directors appointed in March 2017, DGDC Ltd. became operational with a full complement of staff in June 2017.

At present, the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica is the sole shareholder. Its interests are ably monitored by three shareholder representatives in the offices of the Financial Secretary, Secretary to the Cabinet and the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Trade, Energy & Employment.
