This report was prepared by Katerina Syngellakis. The regional programme “Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Island Region” (CCCPIR) aims to build and strengthen the capacities of Pacific member countries and regional organizations to adapt to, and mitigate, climate change impacts. A solar PV system is considered to produce electricity independently of the main grid. In the case of Vanuatu, where the main grid is fuelled almost entirely by diesel, the solar PV system also reduces diesel use and carbon dioxide emissions (one of the greenhouse gases which cause climate change). A solar PV system could be incorporated into the building (on the roof) or placed on a ground-based structure on land belonging to the VMGD adjacent to the Meteo building.
