The NAMA on Rural Electrification in Vanuatu focuses on electrification with renewable energies (solar PV micro grids and grid extension interventions) and is designed as an encouraging holistic framework that will help Vanuatu to move towards a low-carbon pathway while advancing long-term sustainable development benefits. The NAMA is also designed to support Vanuatu in achieving its strategies relevant to access to energy including rural development and to complement the country’s on-going activities in this respect.
Under the UNDP NDC Support/ Low Emissions Capacity Building (LECB) Phase II initiative, the Department of Energy (DoE), Government of Vanuatu has carried-out a detailed techno-economic feasibility study for a solar micro-grid for Wintua and Lorlow village communities located in South West Bay on Malekula island.
The Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC) has now secured funding from Government of Austria for implementation of a solar micro-grid for Wintua and Lorlow village communities located in South West Bay on Malekula island.
SCS is providing technical assistance and back-stopping to the project team (DoE, PM, Contractor and stakeholders) and advice for the implementation, management and commissioning of solar micro-grid for Wintua and Lorlow village communities.
