Training to meet renewable energy targets for the Pacific

Updated 19 August 2014, 8:41 AEST

Pacific leaders reaffirmed their commitment last year to a sustainable future through the adoption of national renewable energy and energy efficiency targets as outlined in the Majuro Declaration on Climate Leadership.

But achieving those targets will always be a challenge for most Pacific nations.

Critical to the process is gaining access to up-to-date, accurate and appropriate data.

It's this aspect that's been the focus of a training workshop in Fiji organised by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the International Renewable Energy Agency.

The head of SPC's Energy Programme, Solomone Fifita, says the workshop is part of a very important process.
