Fiji renewables readiness assessment

Fiji renewables readiness assessment

This report focuses on the scaling up of renewable energy in Fiji and identifies key actions to mobilise resources and guidance for fine-tuning future policy.

It argues that scaling up both hydropower and non-hydro renewables would contribute significantly to the development of sustainable, reliable and affordable energy that would support economic growth and enhance energy security, particularly in rural areas.

The report examines the general enabling environment, as well as energy resources and conversion technologies (service-resource pairs have) available in Fiji. It makes a number of recommendations for priority actions. For example that efforts should be focused on creating an enabling environment to attract private sector investment to the renewable energy sector and that key legislation should be reviewed and harmonised in order to improve the legal framework for renewable energy development.
