Cabinet endorses study by IRENA

Cabinet has been updated on the ‘Legislative and Regulatory Gap Analysis to Facilitate the Just Inclusive Transition for the Energy Sector in Fiji’ study to be undertaken by the Ministry for Public Works, Meteorological Services and Transport.

The process is being supported by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

In a statement, Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka said that the objective of the study is to identify gaps and issues in the current legislative and policy frameworks necessary to foster an environment that accelerates renewable energy uptake in Fiji, while encouraging the private sector participation in the electricity sector.

Rabuka said that thorough consultations will be held as part of the scope of the study, which includes stakeholders from the public sector, utility companies, statutory organisations and the private sector.

He added that the study will be again submitted to Cabinet for its consideration.
