Renewable energy feasibility study
In the framework of OCTA Innovation activities, short-term technical assistance was allocated to Pitcairn. Senior expert in renewable energy was sent for a feasibility study to have more than 20% of renewable energy.
Solar Diesel Hybrid is the preferred solution because:
– It has worked well in many projects across the Pacific (Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, Fiji, FSM, Palau, Niue, Tokelau etc)
– That is the east cost option
– It would replace up to 95% of current diesel use
