As part of the IRENA Islands Initiative, IRENA in collaboration with the Pacific Power Association (PPA) held a workshop, “Assessment of grid stability for increased renewable energy integration in the Pacific” on 15 July in Vanuatu in the margins of the 21st Annual PPA Conference.
The Pacific Islands are perhaps best known for their beautiful beaches, azure waters and rich sea life, but they are rich in something else as well: renewable energy.
A webinar that presented key findings from the IRENA’s report 'Transforming small island power systems' and sharing main takeaways from several grid assessment studies conducted in the recent past for the islands in Cook Islands, Vanuatu and Fiji
Vanuatu’s primary energy supply is dominated by biomass, used mainly for rural cooking, and imported petroleum products for urban energy and transport.
A Path to Prosperity: Renewable Energy for Islands presents a compilation of case studies from small island developing states (SIDS) and development partners.
Pacific islands are endowed with a rich variety of renewable energy resources, providing a viable and attractive alternative to fossil-fuel imports. IRENA’s multi-faceted work across the region is reflected in Pacific Lighthouses: Renewable Energy Roadmapping for Islands. The main report, intended to provide a framework for further action, is accompanied by 15 reports on...
This report addresses the specific conditions for policy making on renewables in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) across the Pacific region and proposes measures to support successful implementation.
IRENA and the Pacific Power Association convened the workshop to assist utilities to identify strategies and technology solutions that can help ensure grid stability, with increasing level of renewable energy inputs.
