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.
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.

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 track "Tuvaluan High Tide" represents the relentless cycle of waves and tides as sea levels rise to swallow up the atolls of Tuvalu. As low-lying islands lacking a surrounding shallow shelf, the communities of Tuvalu are especially susceptible to changes in sea level and undissipated storms. At its highest, Tuvalu is only 4.6 metres (15 ft) above sea level, and Tuvaluan leaders have been concerned about the effects of rising sea levels for many years. It is estimated that a sea level rise of 20–40 centimetres (8–16 inches) in the next 100 years would make Tuvalu uninhabitable. The music incorporates the relentless and repetetive cycle of the rising tides in its build up. The high tide in particular brings with it an inevitable threat to the homes and lives of this island nation...
Getting electricity from the sea is still in early stages compared to solar or wind energy industries. But there are advantages which encourage more and more countries to look to the sea as a source of clean and renewable energy for the future. In Scotland local governments have heavily invested in alternative energy, including tidal flows and waves, as the country prepares to eliminate its dependence on fossil fuels. From Orkney Islands Nicholas Niksadat reports.
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.

The fourth smallest nation in the world -- Tuvalu -- consists of nine low-lying islands with the landmass of 26km2 in the vast ocean of the South Pacific. While most news headlines on climate change tend to emphasize, quite rightly, the existential threats on this tiny nation from sea-level rise, there are many other aspects of climate change impacts that have received less attention by the international community than they deserve, but have extraordinary impacts on communities' vulnerability.
Tokelau is one of the world’s most remote countries – and the first to generate its energy supply using only photovoltaic. The island nation consists of three small atolls in the South Pacific Ocean, north of Samoa, and can only be reached by boat. For a long time, the islanders relied almost exclusively on diesel generators to meet their electricity needs. This was expensive and accounted for the most of pollution in the area. The electricity supply was far from reliable, with intermittent blackouts. However, 2012 Tokelau became the first country in the world with an energy supply based fully on photovoltaics. At one megawatt of power, the entire facility is the largest inverter dominated solar off-grid system in the world. The plants generate more energy than the 1,411 inhabitants of To...

TUVALU, the people: Here's a very unique documentary about the beautiful and very friendly faces of the people of Tuvalu, one of the world's smallest and most isolated countries. Vic Stefanu, firstname.lastname@example.org. Tuvalu, formerly known as the Ellice Islands, is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia
