Tokelau Energy Sector Support (TESS) Project (2015)

The TESS Project aimed to update Tokelau’s energy policy to better reflect the current situation after the major energy transformation that Tokelau underwent in 2012 and set the ambitious targets to ensure that Tokelau’s energy consumption is green, sustainable, and affordable. The household energy efficiency (EE) component helped in increasing the awareness amongst Tokelauan on the energy consumption of household appliances and show how households can save money and the environment through investing in more energy efficient appliances. This also had a positive impact on the solar grids, as it resulted to load reduction and increase in lifetime of equipment/systems.
