Demand Side Management Project South Pacific Island States

The International Institute Energy Conservation (IIEC) prepared the Demand –Side Management (DSM) Program report for the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC). The Nations Development Programme (UNDP) funded a project titled “Support to the Pacific Islands Power Sector” (RAS/92/363) which was implemented through the Energy Division of the South Pacific Forum Secretariat (ForSec) from 1993 to 1996. Building regional capability in all aspects of Demand-side Management (DSM) program design and implementation was one of the key objectives of the project.

One of the objectives of the Regional Energy Program is the reduction in the demand for electricity and the use of fossil fuels for electricity generation in conjunction with the adoption of renewable energy technologies where financially and economically feasible. Most Pacific Islands (with the exception of PNG, Fiji, Solomon Islands and Samoa) are primarily dependent on imported petroleum products for electricity generation. This report provides details of the program designs for Electric Power Corporation (EPC), Samoa and the implementation plan. The aim of this project is to re-establish and continue the development of a DSM Program for the electric power utilities in the region with benefits flowing to all customer sectors.
