In April 2017, Pacific Energy Ministers met and adopted a vision for the Pacific to be 100% on renewable energy and launched the Pacific Centre of Excellence for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE) as a vehicle for accelerating the progress towards their vision by empowering the private sector and the business community. Achieving the region’s 100% renewable energy vision cannot be achieved without private sector investment. A Power Purchase Agreement is an effective tool for attracting private sector investments and is still very new to the Pacific Islands.

This workshop is being attended by regional organisations, Pacific Island countries and territories energy planners, energy regulators, power utility executive officers/board members, banks/investors, independent power producers as well as lawyers and consultants.

The objectives of the workshop are to enable participants to structure successful power purchase agreements, to manage competition in the electricity market and attract power sector investments and to provide inputs to the drafting of a power purchase agreement template for the Pacific Islands.
