At the Third Pacific Regional Energy And Transport Ministers’ Meeting (Nuku’alofa, Tonga, 26–28 April 2017), ministers applauded the launch of the Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE), a collaboration to up-scale and replicate national efforts in the areas of capacity development, knowledge management and innovation, awareness raising, as well as investment and business promotion. The centre has a strong focus on the private sector and industry while supporting targeted renewable energy and energy efficiency programs to enhance the productivity of key industries with high job leverage (e.g. agriculture, tourism, fishery, manufacturing, creative industry) and the creation of a locally sustainable energy servicing and manufacturing industry. 

Under the NZ-supported South-South capacity building exchange and the PCREEE’s capacity development support to the private sector, training on the Promotion of Sustainable Energy Entrepreneurship will be conducted by the PCREEE in Suva, Fiji on 2 – 6 October 2017. 

The objectives of the exchange are to strengthen local business capacity and expertise in sustainable energy and increase investments and job opportunities in sustainable energy. 

The purpose of the exchange is to promote entrepreneurship and private sector investment in sustainable energy in the participating countries.

The exchange is intended to lead into the registration and/or expansion of local businesses on sustainable energy.  It is also intended to showcase successful entrepreneurship on the ground – financial and technical business management practices, technical innovation, technologies, etc - that would motivate participants to see the business opportunities in their respective countries and commit themselves as a key driver of sustainable energy in their respective countries.
