Pacific Islands Renewable Energy Programme (PIREP)

Project Summary

The proposed PIREP will facilitate the promotion with the Pacific Island Coduntries (PICs) of the widespread implementation and ultimately, commercialization of RE technologies (RETs). The establishment of an enabling environment conducive to the region-wide adoption and commercialization of RETs would involve the design, development and implementation of appropriate policies, strategies and interventions addressing the fiscal, financial, regulatory, market, technical and information barriers to RE development and utilization. The project has a regional approach to reflect the existing regional set-up and to improve the policy-making abilities of the small nations.
