This report was prepared by Rupeni Mario. The Pacific island countries are heavily dependent on fossil fuels to meet their increasing energy needs for economic development. The high costs associated with fossil fuels are placing an increasing strain on the economies in the region.  A significant factor in energy usage patterns in Pacific island countries has been attributed to the availability of energy sources as early as the fifteenth century where pollution control was not an issue. People have used what they have been able to get, be it coal, oil, natural gas, wood, etc. However, within the last two decades warnings of global destruction and climate change have become major issues. The growth of environmental awareness and the rising demand for energy has urged researchers to identify other sources of renewable energy.
