Short mission report to the Federated States of Micronesia from November to December in Yap State. The aim of the mission to FSM carried out by Mr. Brewer and Ms. Legros was to visit and assess the suitability for renewable energy systems of seven of the outer islands in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). The overall assessment was to examine the potential to supply electricity to the health centres and schools on these islands using renewable energy technologies. In particular the assessment was to examine potential sites for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on these islands and examine the potential electrical load that the systems would be required to supply. In the case of Yap, the assessment would also examine the potential to supply electricity to households on the islands of Asor and Fadrai and the suitability of stand-alone solar PV versus a solar PV mini-grid, given the conditions on each of the islands (distance between houses, number of houses, etc).  The important part of the mission was to engage local communities and the local utility and establish whether they wanted such power systems, identify their needs and identify potential solutions.
