Nuku’alofa, Tonga - Like many other small island developing states (SIDS), Pacific islands are heavily affected by climate change and the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 crisis. The continued dependency on expensive fossil fuel imports hampers the success of economic recovery strategies. Pacific SIDS need policies that address challenges simultaneously and build a bridge to innovations driven by decentralisation, decarbonisation and digitalisation.

Pacific Energy Ministers launched the establishment of the Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE) in 2017. Hosted by the Pacific Community at Nuku’alofa, Tonga the PCREEE is working collaboratively with partners to accelerate the deployment of feasible renewable energy and energy efficient technologies throughout the Pacific Islands.

A Sustainable Energy Association for Vanuatu is in sight with consultation meetings being held in Port Vila and Santo this week.

The Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE) is coordinating the foundation talks in collaboration with the Vanuatu Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC).

The initial meeting in Port Vila earlier this week was attended by more than 18 mostly private sector participants, including electrical contractors, solar retailers and contractors, technical tertiary institutions and the Chamber of Commerce.

Energy efficiency challenges in Vanuatu’s land transport sector were addressed at a meeting in Port Vila this week.

Despite land transport being the single highest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in Vanuatu, to date most of its efforts to reduce reliance on fossil fuel has focused on fuel used for power generation.
