LPG and Natural Gas as Alternative Energy Sources for the Pacific

The study assesses the potential and economic feasibility of LPG, LNG or CNG to meet medium term energy needs in PICTs. It considers the end-use applications of power generation, process heating, maritime transport, land transport, cooking and water heating. The existing fuels considered for substitution include heavy fuel oil (HFO), diesel, gasoline, kerosene and biomass.

International aviation fuel is excluded because gas does not offer a technologically viable alternative to aviation fuel at this stage.

Enhancing Effective Regulation of Water and Energy Infrastructure and Utility Services: Interim Pacific Report

This report was prepared by Castalia Advisory to the Asian Development Bank. The provision of water and energy infrastructure and services in the Pacific is poor when compared with other small island states. Many people, especially the rural poor, lack access to adequate water and energy services, and many water and energy utilities provide ineffective and inefficient service.

Participant Manual - Pacific Renewable Energy and Microfinance (PREM)

This report was prepared by the Foundation for the Development Cooperation for the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency. Scientifically, energy is defined as the ability for something to “work” now or in the future. This abstract definition has little meaning for nonscientists, so for simplicity it is more common to think of energy in terms of the services it provides.
