PPA represents 25 electric utilities in the region and has been collaborating with other CROP agencies in the energy sector in the Pacific. PPA has been and will continue to implement activities that are directly linked to reduction of climate change risks through work with the electric utilities of the PICTs. These activities aim to increase energy efficiency in supply side management and demand side management. The activities will result in not only a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions but also improved utility performance.
PPA is currently promoting the use of renewable energy by ensuring that the utilities are ready to take on increased generation capacity from renewable energy sources. This work involves regulatory, technical and policy changes in the utilities. Upcoming work will be on renewable energy resource mapping in solar and wind as well as working with utilities to be more disaster resilient.
