Finding and realising renewable energy opportunities in the Pacific Islands
21 July 2021
During the last 10 years renewable energy options have significantly reduced in price, and technology has advanced to create a more optimal performance. These developments have made it more viable for renewable energy 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.
The agriculture sector is a major provider of jobs. It addresses food security, empowers communities, and improves livelihoods across the Blue Pacific continent. The sector is prone to adverse weather conditions, yet its produce is highly sort after in New Zealand. It is the largest source of exports from the region to New Zealand.
