The Government of Tuvalu has proposed the installation of Solar Home Standalone (SHS) Systems and PV Cooling Storage Facility for the islands of Niulakita and Funafala. The project has been made possible through funding provided by the Italian Government through an agreement signed between the Government of Italy represented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Sea and the Pacific SIDS Permanent Missions based at the United Nations in New York.

The overall aim of the project is to improve the well-being of the residents living in these outer islands by promoting the use of renewable energy resources through the implementation of cost-effective, equitable, reliable, accessible, affordable, secure and environmentally sustainable energy systems. This is by providing them with quality lighting at night and a community cooling storage facility to drive small-scale economic activities, like preserving the freshness of fish and other food items that resident can sell their product to the main market on Funafuti, the capital of Tuvalu.

Tender was put out calling for bidders to supply, install and commission the SHS and PV cooling storage facilities for the outer islands in Tuvalu.
