Tuvalu

National Energy Policy

Executive
Policy
Passed in 2009
The Policy identifies three main energy policy considerations:
 - Adequate, secure and cost-effective supply;
 - Efficient utilisation to avoid wasteful or non-productive energy consumption;
 - Minimising the negative impacts of energy production, transportation, conversion, utilisation and consumption on the environment.
 
 The policy is divided into seven key areas: energy sector planning, co-ordination and management; petroleum; transport; electricity; renewable energy; energy conservation and efficiency; and environment. It outlines a goal for Tuvalu of 100% renewable energy by 2020, namely solar, wind and biofuels, and estimates a total cost of achieving this of $20 million. To achieve this goal it suggests, among other strategies, reviving a national solar energy company that ceased operations due to management issues and calls for energy efficiency measures in all sectors. The policy also aims to reduce dependence on petroleum products by encouraging fuel conservation and actively searching for alternatives.
