Summary

In 2009, a review of the Pacific regional energy programme identified a lack of vision and leadership in the energy sector. In response to this review the Framework for Action on Energy Security in the Pacific (FAESP) was developed to replace the Pacific Islands Energy Policy of 2004.

Upon request of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), EUEI PDF financed a consultant to facilitate a consultation meeting on the Implementation Plan (IP) for the FAESP, and to identify baseline energy security indicators for the FAESP in six Island Countries - Fiji, Niue, RMI, Samoa, Tonga and Tuvalu. The indicators and the sample baseline were developed and discussed during the consultation workshops in February 2011. Following the workshop, the consultant calculated the energy security indicators for Niue, Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu. This exercise has given staff of SPC’s Energy Programme hands-on experience in the collection of the raw data and their analysis and the actual calculation of the energy security indicators.

Having piloted the approach with an initial set of countries, the SPC is now supporting the remaining countries in establishing the indicators and their means of measurement. To enable SPC to complete the calculation of the energy security indicators for the remaining countries and to build the capacity in the these countries to be able to collect, store, analyze and update the indicators on an annual basis, EUEI PDF funded additional activities providing in-country follow up and hands-on assistance to countries with weaker capacities. The findings of this activity were presented during a pre event of the Asia Clean Energy Forum in Manila in June 2012.
