The PALS Programme is designed to assist Pacific countries implement labeling and standards for energy using equipment such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and lighting. The need for introducing a PALS programme to the Pacific region was realised at the 42nd meeting of Pacific Islands Forum Leaders in September 2011. At that same meeting, Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced her support for the introduction of energy labelling and standards for electrical appliances in the Pacific region. This led to the establishment of a PALS programme at SPC, supported by Australia. PALS has now expanded to include 12 PICTs.

As of December 2015, F$2.5m or 52% has been used out of the total F$4.8m grant received. PALS Project doesn't have specific country allocation costs, funding is provided based on the activities that countries request for. The progress of the project is monitored against a log frame matrix that is provided in the Activities Section below.
