This Fiji Renewable Energy Power Project (FREPP) focuses on the removal of barriers (policy, regulatory, market, finance, and technical) to the wide-scale use of RE resources for grid-connected power generation in Fiji. It is in line with the GEF-4 Strategic Program 3 on promoting market approaches for the supply of renewable electricity in utility scale grid-based power systems; and Strategic Program 4, on promoting sustainable energy production from biomass and modern uses of biomass.

The proposed project consists of 4 main components, each addressing specific categories of barriers, and these are:

  1. Energy Policy & Regulatory Frameworks;  
  2. RE Resource Assessments and RE-based Project Assessments;
  3. RE-based Power Generation Demonstrations; and,
  4.  RE Institutional Strengthening.

FREPP is expected to facilitate investments in RE-based power generation in Fiji, which will not only support the socio-economic development of the country, make use of the country’s RE resources and reduced GHG emissions. See "Related Publications" for various outputs produced under the FREPP Project.
