The area of the island Pohnpei was mapped with very high resolution image data (VHR), which allows: a) a stratification of the coconut area into three different densities; and b) a counting of coconut palms from the image data.
This is very precise synoptic information and provides a clear picture of the area. There was cloud cover over about one third of the island preventing image analysis, however, this was mostly in the mountain region where coconut palms are not planted.
The European Union and Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) partnership through North-REP (North Pacific ACP Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Project) has installed solar PV micro-grids in the outer islands of Yap. A total of 279kW of solar PV capacity installed as 10 micro-grids in the five outer islands of: Mogmog – Ulithi, Falalop – Ulithi, Fais, Falalop Wolea and Satawal.
Location: States of Pohnpei, Kosrae, Chuuk and Yap Objective: Enhancing investments in small-scale renewable energy in FSM through providing legislation to guide the connection of renewable energy systems to the main power grid and access to loans. Implementing Agency: Pacific Community (SPC) Budget: € 325,000 Duration: 2017—2018
Location: States of Pohnpei, Kosrae, Chuuk and Yap Objective: Increase community awareness of climate change adaptation and sustainable energy measures through installations on schools and public buildings, and through development of school curriculum.

This Report presents the Energy Master Plans for each of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), and for the nation.
The State Energy Master Plans contribute to the National Vision Statement for Energy: to “improve the life and livelihood of all FSM residents with affordable, reliable and environmentally sound energy”. They set out what investments are required to achieve this vision in the electricity sector over the next 20 years, and how the investments will be financed and implemented.
This report is an effort to capture what has been carried out under the ‘Implementation Plan of the Framework for Action on Energy Security in the Pacific 2011–2015’. It is an attempt to improve the accountability and transparency of the work of the implementation partners, in highlighting what has been carried out, what were their outputs and what impacts they made.
