Company turns Pacific countries solar-powered
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 14 August 2018
“A New York-based analytics company says it is working to help several Pacific countries switch to renewable energy sources.
“Gridmarket is currently rolling out solar panels across Palau free of charge and says the country could be mostly solar-powered by next year.
“Its chief executive Nick Davis said the company is in talks with a number of other Pacific states to do similar work, funded by private investors.
"Pacific Island countries, Caribbean countries as well. Really, island nations that are facing similar challenges globally with regard to vulnerable grids, diesel dependency, weather intensification.
"All the things that really make them not only a good target, but a critical target for a lot of these distributed energy transformations and sustainability transformations."
“Mr Davis declined to name the countries involved.”
