Pacific Energy Update 2013
What is the status of the energy sector in the Pacific? ADB supports the region's developing member countries in three strategic areas: developing indigenous and renewable energy resources to reduce reliance on imported fossil fuels, improving the efficiency of electricity generation and end-use, and expanding access to electricity for households and small businesses.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is working to assist in the development of the energy sector in 14 Pacific developing member countries (DMCs) through technical assistance, loan, and grant financing. ADB is providing support for the rehabilitation and expansion of power sector infrastructure, improvement of electricity access rates, expansion of renewable energy generation, and improvement of end-use efficiency. ADB is currently implementing energy projects in nine Pacific DMCs - the Cook Islands, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. This document provides an update of the existing portfolio of Pacific energy projects for 2013, and a summary of proposed assistance for 2014.
