In line with the decisions of the Ministers of Energy of the Pacific Islands States and Territories (PICTs), the project aims to establish and implement the first operational phase of the Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE). The centre represents an innovative fusion of regional and international efforts and capabilities. Its design leverages a network of intra and extra regional partnerships, serving as a "hub" for knowledge and technical expertise on matters related to sustainable energy projects' implementation. It will also serve as a facilitator for innovative partnerships with the private sector.

The main counterparts are the Pacific Community (SPC), the Sustainable Energy Island and Climate Resilience Initiative (SIDS DOCK) and the Government of the Kingdom of Tonga. The centre will provide key technical services to the SPC Member States and closely cooperate with other regional sustainable energy centres for SIDS (ECREEE, CCREEE) in the context of the SAMOA pathway implementation, SDG 7, SDG 9 and the Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement (SDG 13).
