The tourism industry in Vava’u, the demand for 24 hours electricity supply for its outer islands and a transition to non-fossil fuel transportation are investment opportunities that would assist to achieve Tonga’s renewable energy targets. These are the sentiments delivered by Dr Tevita Tukunga, the Director of Energy with MEIDECC, when he opened an Energy investment Meeting at Neiafu, Vava’u on 13th October 2020.

In a series of three webinars taking place throughout the second half of September, public and private sector representatives, regional organizations, initiative proponents and financiers came together to discuss opportunities and barriers to scaling up investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency and smart mobility in the Pacific island countries.
