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.
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.
We sailed to Nukufetau, a Tuvaluan atoll located between Funafuti and Tarawa (Kiribati), and were overwhelmed by our welcome. These generous people invited us into their homes, to a local wedding and even asked us to participate in their annual Independence Day celebrations. This short video highlights this special place and our new friends...

Our recent addition to SOUL Spot TV, Tales from Nanumea. Long ago, a war was waged between two nations: Tonga and Nanumea (currently an islet of Tuvalu). The Tongans set out to destroy the Nanmeans, over the death of a fallen prince, but even their strongest warrior, a giant by the name of Tulaapoupou, was no match for the likes of Nanumea's protector, Lapi.

Philipp Kunze pitches OneShore Energy at ECO15 Berlin. The Berlin-based startup sells hybrid PV and Diesel systems in Kenya and Tanzania to save energy costs for small and medium sized companies. OneShore Energy is backed by High-Tech Gründerfonds and will be fundraising in 2016. This is an interesting investment opportunity for impact investors and VCs focused on energy access in emerging markets.
This video looks at islands and energy in more depth, including interviews with a solar energy engineer who works in the South Pacific, several NGOs that are working to bring reliable energy to Indonesian and Melanesian islands, and experts on the water-energy nexus in the Philippines. Remoteness, challenging weather, a lack of potable water - other than rainwater - are just some of the challenges that people living on islands face. Julia McDonald, a Renewable Energy Engineer at IT Power, explains that in Tuvalu, some islands are only visited by a boat once per month. This means that if the seas are rough, they may miss that boat. In terms of energy, shipments of diesel for their generators may not arrive for weeks or months, leaving them without a reliable source of energy for their r...
In September this year, Nobuteru Ishihara, Japan's Minister of the Environment / Minister of State for the Nuclear Emergency Preparedness, visited Tuvalu, took a tour around the island and spoke with the country's Prime Minister Hon. Enele Sopoaga. There, both countries' PMs gained consensus on the fact that island countries are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change and that climate change is a matter of life-and-death for the people and the country's existence itself. After this visit, we had an opportunity to speak with Tuvalu's PM Sopoaga concerning Japan's possible use of nuclear power.

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, the tiniest nation on earth and the most vulnerable to Climate Change, was the only country, on March 28 2009th, to take into account Earth Hour, nationally, by powering down the whole country. Saving 284 kg Co2 on the main island. In 2009, following up on last years first shot at Earth Hour, the Tuvalu Climate Action Network (TUCAN) chose to have the activity pass cabinet and to make Earth Hour a national event : the power was cut from the Tuvalu Electricity Corporation on the 9 islands of the archipelago. Members of TUCAN, the organization coordinating Earth Hour in Tuvalu. One week before the planned members met : Semese Alefaio (TANGO, a marine life specialist, acting in the absence of President Tafaue Lusama defending the cause abroad), Tataua Pese (Red Cross), Hilia Vavae (M...
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 sequence takes place during the national energy study headed by Alofa Tuvalu on behalf of the Tuvalu Government and financed by the ADEME and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This survey trip prepares the ground and is the first step for implementing renewable energies at what will become the Amatuku National Training and Demonstration Centre.

http://wonkroom.thinkprogress.org/2009/12/13/tuvalu-fate-senate/ 12/12/09: Ian Fry, the Tuvalu delegate to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, makes an impassioned plea for legally binding agreements to be made by world leaders to save his nation and other low-lying island states. He notes that is is "an irony of the modern world that the fate of the world is being determined by some senators in the US Congress," and suggests that President Obama earn his Nobel Peace Prize by addressing the greatest threat to humanity and to security: climate change. Tearfully, he concludes: "The fate of my country rests in your hands."
Travel to Tuvalu A land of Coral and Beauty Tuvalu is a beautiful group of tiny atolls in the south pacific. The unique culture and isolation makes this place what it is. The people here are like the sun, they are warm, spread light, and and energize you with their light.
In 2016, the UNWTO listed Tuvalu as the least visited countries in the World. Many of the leisure tourists only went to check it off their list so they can say they have visited all countries in the World. The Travel Professor found only a few 'attractions' but a country with a rich culture and untouched environment. I also talk to Noa from the Library and show a fatele, the national dance, being performed at the end of the video.

world tourism and education is a branch of education theory which relates to the teaching of young children (formally and informally) up until the age of about eight. Infant/toddler education, a subset of early childhood education, denotes the education of children from birth to age two. In recent years, early childhood education has become a prevalent public policy issue, as municipal, state, and federal lawmakers consider funding for preschool

Once again, Nauru has become a temporary home to hundreds of people seeking a new life in Australia. While the decision to send asylum seekers to the South Pacific island is in dispute locals hope it will provide a lifeline to the country. Nauru is just 21 square kilometres, and has a population of fewer than 10 thousand people. SBS correspondent Jeannette Francis travelled to Nauru to find that many local business owners believe the tiny economy will be revived by the influx of people.
