Description/achievement of initiative

The main objectives of this initiative are to:
* Promote and develop renewable energy technology appropriate to the marine and tropical environment of the Asia-Pacific region (e.g. hybrid power systems, solar home systems for remote villages)
* Assist, facilitate and support its application through technical services, education, and training for the sustainable development of the region.

The renewable-energy-based technologies under this initiative have and will continue to result in improved quality of life and economic development of Pacific Island nations with minimal environmental impact.
