Nadi, 27th November 2018 - Five countries including Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu have adopted the Minimum Energy Performance Standards and Labeling (MEPSL) legislations and are currently enforcing these. Four countries including Cook Islands, Kiribati, Niue and Tonga have their draft bills awaiting the endorsement by Parliament and Papua New Guinea have got drafts that are still subject to public consultations and the momentum should not be lost.

The Pacific Community’s, Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE) held its 3rd Steering Committee Meeting at its Suva Regional Office on the 21st – 23rd November 2018.

The 9th meeting of the Pacific Energy Advisory Group meeting welcomed the participation of Palau, Tonga and Vanuatu in an innovative renewable energy analytics platform, RE-SAT, that is to be developed by the UK-based Institute for Environmental Analytics.   .

The key focus of the Pacific Community's Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency is on the private sector and industry, while at the same time supporting targeted RE & EE programs to enhance the productivity and competitiveness of key industries with high job leverage in the Pacific (e.g. agriculture, tourism, fishery, manufacturing, creative industry). While health is not regarded as an economic productive sector, it has promising opportunities for the widespread utilisaton of feasible renewable energy and energy effiicency technologies.

20th November, 2018 - Tonga, a Small Island Developing State in the Asia-Pacific region, is highly vulnerable to climate change. Despite having a huge potential for renewable energy, particularly from solar and wind, several technical and financial barriers have constrained the uptake of renewable energy in the country, resulting to a reliance on fossil fuels for more than 70% of electricity generation in 2018.
