PAS: Geothermal Power and Electricity Sector Development Project

Project Summary

The overall development objective of the WB-supported Vanuatu Geothermal Power and Electricity Sector Development Program is to support overall planning and initial implementation of an Energy Sector Roadmap for a least-cost program of grid and off-grid access expansion, taking into account energy security risks related to high dependence on imported petroleum for power generation. Specifically the priorities are scaling up electricity access and lowering the costs of electricity supply by increasing the penetration of sustainable electricity supply from renewable energy. The Global Environmental Objective of the GEF-financed component is to support development of the enabling framework and project preparation activities, essential to advance systematically the Government’s initiatives in the two areas of focus above.
