Find out about global trends for funding agricultural projects and what technical assistance might needed to accelerate the development of investable agricultural opportunities and de-risk and facilitate investor engagement.

Renewable Energy

Finding and realising renewable energy opportunities in the Pacific Islands.

During the last 10 years renewable energy options have significantly reduced price, and technology has advanced to ensure more optimal performance. These developments have made it more viable to compete with diesel generation as a preferred energy source for the Pacific Islands.

Pacific Trade Invest NZ is aware of the need to develop renewable energy projects in the Blue Pacific.

We are looking to help support Pacific Island Countries by providing the tools to find and realise opportunities on how to source investment for renewable energy projects.

Pacific Trade Invest NZ has partnered with internationally renowned renewable energy finance experts Camco Clean Energy to deliver a webinar which will talk about:

  • well-priced, well-performing renewable energy options countries may wish to consider
  • the advantages and disadvantages of direct use technologies versus grid connectivity
  • the advantages and disadvantages of independent power producers (IPPs) versus public renewable energy development and funding
  • private capital and the advantages it can bring versus only using donor funding.
