FIJI RENEWABLE ENERGY POWER PROJECT
The FREPP is a UNDP-GEF – Fiji Government funded Project whose main objective is the removal of barriers (policy, regulatory, market, finance, and technical) to the wide-scale use of renewable energy resources for grid-connected power generation in Fiji.  The project consists of four main components, each addressing specific categories of barriers including: i) Energy Policy & Regulatory Frameworks; ii) Renewable Energy Resource Assessments; iii) Renewable Energy-based Power Generation Demonstrations; iv)Renewable Energy Institutional Strengthening.  

It is in line with the GEF-4 Strategic Program 3 on the promotion of market approaches for the supply of renewable electricity in utility scale grid-based power systems; and Strategic Program 4, on the promotion of sustainable energy production from biomass and modern uses of biomass.  The FREPP is also aligned to the goals outlined in the revised National Energy Policy under the Grid-based Power Supply and the Renewable Energy Policy Areas. FREPP is expected to facilitate investments in renewable energy-based power generation in Fiji which will not support the socio-economic development of the country, but also make use of the country’s renewable energy resources and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

PROJECT GOAL and OUTCOMES

The goal of FREPP is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from Fiji’s power sector.  This will be accomplished by replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy resources such as biomass.  

The following are the expected outcomes from the FREPP:
•    Facilitation of investments on energy projects particularly on renewable energy and biomass-based power generation;
•    Technical feasibility of harnessing RE resources are ascertained and made widely known;
•    Markets for specific RE technologies are supported; and
•    RE developments integrated into a National Energy Plan towards 100% electrification of Fiji.
