The costs and benefits of introducing standards and labels for electrical appliances in Pacific Island countries

PDF version

Description

It is estimated that 7 million out of the 10 million people living in Pacific Island countries and territories still do not have access to any form of electricity. Therefore, the region has largely concentrated on generating extra electricity. In its role as the lead agency coordinating the implementation of the new Framework for Action on Energy Security in the Pacific, SPC with the support of key partners, including the Australian Government Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, is now also focusing attention on more efficient use of the electricity already available.
