Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

The IIEC is the Technical Assistance Consultant for the Promoting Energy Efficiency in The Pacific: Phase 2 (PEEP2) funded by the Asian Developed Bank (ADB).


The objective of PEEP2 is to improve efficiency in the use of electrical power for consumers in five Pacific developing member countries (PDMCs) - the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Samoa, Tonga, and Vanuatu - through demand-side energy efficiency improvements in the residential, commercial, and government sectors of each country. The project commenced in November 2011 and is due to conclude in November 2014.


IIEC’s Asia Director and PEEP2 Team Leader/International Energy Efficiency Expert for the Cook Islands - Felix Gooneratne - undertook missions to Samoa, Tonga and Cook Islands during the period 18th September to 29th September 2012. Meetings were held with the respective Implementing Agencies and major stakeholders in each county. The objective of the mission was to assess progress made by the project and discuss next steps and way forward for commencing the development and implementation of potential energy efficiency projects in each country in 2013/2014. During the Cook Islands mission, the PEEP2 team were interviewed by the Cook Islands Herald News and the local television network. The news article is attached.
