PowerSmart Solar works with the New Zealand Aid Programme to complete a $35 Million Renewable Energy Project in Tuvalu and the Northern Cooks. The project consists of installing 12 off-grid solar power stations on 10 remote south pacific atolls in 2015. The project won best solar installation with storage at the 2015 SEANZ awards.
This short documentary film, created through the Pacific Islands Greenhouse Gas Abatement through Renewable Energy Project (PIGGAREP), documents the life-changing potential of 24 hour solar power for communities living in the remote islands of Tuvalu. Earlier this year, PIGGAREP sent a small team to remote Tuvalu to capture the community response to new solar photovoltaic (PV) installations being constructed on the islands of Nukufetau, Nukulaelae and Nui. These installations will ensure that, for the first time ever, electricity will be available 24 hours a day to the communities in these remote locations. The solar project has been made possible through a partnership between the Government of Tuvalu and the European Union, with additional support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs...
Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country in the world and is aiming to have 100% generation of electricity through renewable sources by 2020. IUCN, with assistance from the Governments of Austria and Italy, helped to achieve this vision. This video highlights a hybrid solar power system installed on Vaitupu, the largest island in Tuvalu and home to the only government secondary school. Due to its success, the government is looking to replicate the project on six other outer islands of Tuvalu.
Tālofa! Happy Tuvalu language week! This week, we ask our AUT #Tuvaluan students: Why should renewable energy be our future? Tuvalu is leading the way for other nations to follow by working towards getting 100% of their electricity from renewable sources. In light of Tuvalu Language Week, our students are creating awareness for United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development 7: Affordable & Clean Energy.
United Nations, New York, April 2010 - Halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand is one of the smallest countries in the world: Tuvalu. This island nation is seriously threatened by climate change. Sea-level rise brings not only high tides, but also causes severe damage to the island's porous soil, endangering the nations traditional crops.
The setting: An island with 4,000 inhabitants and three diesel generators to supply power. The mission: Reduce fossil fuel usage and establish a grid stabilizing energy supply based on renewable energies. The challenge: Supply a smart combination of a 2 MWp PV farm and diesel generators; introduce the largest lithium battery storage system in the Caribbean; use the latest SMA products; and develop a new monitoring platform—within the space of just nine months. ----- SMA Sunbelt – Turnkey solutions for hybrid applications Contact: Sunbelt@SMA.de More information about the project: http://en.sma-sunny.com/2016/05/24/flagship-project-in-the-caribbean-pv-hybrid-system-on-the-island-of-st-eustatius/ http://www.sma.de/en/newsroom/current-news/news-details/news/15828-sustainable-power-suppl...

In this short video, you'll hear from experts who aim to provide rural, remote islands with energy. From Tuvalu to Indonesia to Melanesia and beyond, islands face unique energy challenges. Some of these challenges include: challenging weather and turbulent seas, relying on rainwater for fresh drinking water, and remoteness. Many islands, if they are lucky, have a diesel generator. But shipments of diesel can be dangerous on rough seas, and bad weather or a generator breakdown can mean going without energy and electricity for weeks or months. The people and organisations in this video are looking for solutions to these unique island challenges.

A shouting match has taken place at the COP15 talks on climate change in Copenhagen between the representatives of Tuvalu, an Island-state in the south Pacific that is about to be flooded, and the president of the COP15 meeting Connie Hedegaard.
The Governments of Italy and Austria are implementing a wide range of energy and climate change related projects in 12 Pacific Island Countries with the overall goal of supporting sustainable development initiatives on islands. Six of these energy efficiency and renewable energy projects are being implemented by IUCN in Tonga, Palau, Tuvalu, Marshall Islands, Samoa and Vanuatu.
Tuvalu Sports Ground is a multi-use stadium in Funafuti, Tuvalu. It is currently used mostly for football and rugby matches. The stadium holds 1,500 people. It is the only stadium in Tuvalu so all football tournaments are played at the stadium: A-Division; Independence Cup; NBT Cup; Tuvalu Games and also the Christmas Cup. The Tuvalu national football team draws from players in the Tuvalu A-Division; with the national team training at the Tuvalu Sports Ground. The first large scale system for renewable energy in Tuvalu is a 40 kW solar panel installation on the roof of the Tuvalu Sports Ground stands. This grid-connected 40 kW solar system was established in 2008 by the E8 and Japan Government through Kansai Electric Company (Japan) and contributes 1% of electricity production on Funafuti....

Tuvalu (formerly the Ellice Islands) comprises a cluster of nine islands, plus islets, located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean just south of the Equator. These remote atolls are situated about 1,050 km (650 mi) n of Suva, Fiji, and 4,000 km (2,500 mi) ne of Sydney, Australia. They lie in a 595-km-long (370-mi) chain extending over some 1,300,000 sq km (500,000 sq mi) of ocean and have a total land area of 26 sq km (10 sq mi). Comparatively, the area occupied by Tuvalu is about 0.1 times the size of Washington, D.C. Tuvalu has a coastline of 24 km (15 mi). Tuvalu's capital city, Funafuti is located on the island of Funafuti.
Wallis and Futuna, officially the Territory of the Wallis and Futuna Islands, is a French island collectivity in the South Pacific between Tuvalu to the northwest, Fiji to the southwest, Tonga to the southeast, Samoa to the east, and Tokelau to the northeast. Though both French and Polynesian, Wallis and Futuna is distinct from the entity known as French Polynesia. Its land area is 142.42 km2 (54.99 sq mi) with a population of about 12,000. Mata-Utu is the capital and biggest city. The territory is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands along with a number of tiny islets, and is split into two island groups that lie about 260 km (160 mi) apart, namely the Wallis Islands (Uvea) in the northeast, and the Hoorn Islands (also known as the Futuna Islands) in the southwest, including F...
