The Tuvalu Sustainable Energy Interventions initiative aims to Improve public awareness on energy conservation and energy efficiency in the country. It develops capacity of technicians to maintain solar-diesel hybrid systems and solar PV stand-alone home systems in outer islands. The project also adds value to proposed Italian-funded renewable energy project “Tuvalu Photovoltaic Electricity Network Integration" (TPVENI) and enables resource mobilization to sustain programme.
Main deliverables include: 1. Community awareness-raising on energy conservation and energy efficiency; 2. Training workshop for solar-diesel and solar PV technicians; 3. Maintenance supplies to solar home systems provided to outer islands; and 4. Resource mobilization strategy for replicating best practices to other island communities.
