In a continued effort to support Pacific Islands to effectively response and build back stronger and safer from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and natural disasters, the International Solar Alliance (ISA) and Pacific Community’s Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE), jointly invite you to a series of webinars aimed at supporting new employment opportunities and entrepreneurship, safer and more reliable supply of cleaner and affordable electricity as well as cost savings and resilience in the Pacific Islands.
The webinars are hosted by the ISA and the PCREEE in partnership with INES and NREL.
It is widely acknowledged that the Pacific Island Countries and their most fragile environment and economies are most vulnerable to climate change and global disruptions such as COVID -19. But these disasters are also opportunities for a re-set to bounce back stronger and safer.
Most of the electricity generation in the individual Pacific Islands are from generators with capacities of less than 1 MW. Increasing these systems are integrated with renewable energy generation that are mostly from solar.
In times of emergency response to disaster, the reliability of the power supply is of paramount importance. The webinars on micro-grids are to assist PICs to effectively respond and build back stronger and safer from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and natural disasters.
