Pacific Islands Energy Policy and Strategic Action Planning

PDF version

Description

The Pacific Islands Energy and Strategic Action Plan is structured across ten key sections of the Pacific Islands Energy Policy (PIEP). These ten sections have the following goals and each area is underpinned by a series of policies:

  • Regional Energy Sector Co-ordination: A co-operative approach to energy sector co-ordination that maximises the impact of regional resources and capabilities.
  • Policy and Planning: Open and consultative cross-sectoral policy development and integrated planning to achieve sustainable supply and use of energy.
  • Power: Reliable, safe and affordable access to efficient power for all Pacific island communities.
  • Transportation: Environmentally clean, energy efficient and cost effective transportation within the region.
  • Renewable Energy: An increased share of renewable energy in the region’s energy supply
  • Petroleum: Safe, reliable, and affordable supplies of petroleum products to all Pacific island countries.
  • Rural Areas and Remote Islands: Available, reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound energy supplies for the social and economic development of rural areas and remote islands.
  • Environment: Environmentally sustainable development of energy sources and use of energy within the region.
  • Efficiency and Conservation: Optimised energy consumption in all sectors of the regional economy and society.
  • Human and Institutional Capacity: Adequate human and institutional capacity to plan, manage, and develop the Pacific energy sector.

The project aims to assist with the development of national energy policies, strategic action plans, and practical mechanisms to implement these in the 14 participating Pacific Island Countries.Funding source: The Government of Denmark
