Vanuatu Rural Electrification Project (VREP)

Vanuatu Rural Electrification Project (VREP)

Vanuatu Rural Electrification Project (VREP I) is aimed at increasing access to basic lighting and phone charging capabilities using subsidised 5watts and above ‘Plug and Play’ solar systems.

VREP II will support SHS, micro and mini grids in rural areas, strengthen institutions, and increase business opportunities for the private sector for the supply decentralized electricity services. VREP II will transition from “plug and play” systems to more advanced SHS that require technical support, micro grids and mini grids where the latter can be supported on economic or piloting benefits. The project includes three components.

The objective of the Vanuatu Rural Electrification Project (VREP) is to scale up access to electricity services for rural households, aid posts and not-for-profit community halls located in dispersed off-grid areas.

There are number of Renewable Energy Projects and other energy related programs implemented by Department of Energy (DoE) that addresses Climate Change Mitigation; Visit DoE Website or specifically browse this site to view more on Renewable Energy Projects.
