Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development in Pacific Island Countries
Juswanto, Wawan; Ali, Zulfiqar | December 2016
Oil consumption comprises 80% of total energy consumption, of which 75% is used for transportation and electricity generation. Fuel imports account for 10% of the gross domestic product of the Pacific island countries (PICs), except for Fiji’s at 14%. Renewable energy projects contribute 20%–40% of energy in the Cook Islands, Fiji, and Vanuatu and are being improved to increase production to 100%. Other PICs are following their lead. The role of multilateral partners in providing financial and technical assistance remains crucial to achieving 100% renewable energy targets set by the PICs by 2030.
