Energy Efficient Retrofitting

Country: Federated States of Micronesia

Phase: 2

Status: Ongoing

Summary of Activity:

The objective is to establish scalable, adaptable, low-technology systems for communities and families to reduce greenhouse gases emissions and promote environmental and human health.

The Federated States of Micronesia submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution on 24 November 2015 to the UNFCCC Secretariat and has an ambitious emission reduction target of 35% reduction by 2025. The achievement of this target of 35% emission reduction by 2025 will mainly be driven by abatement of GHG’s in electricity generation and transport subsectors.

The project is developed based on a similar approach as that of the recommendations of the energy audit findings of the Palikir complex that was undertaken by the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC) in 2016. The project will procure and install energy-efficient air-conditioning units and lights to retrofit buildings and assist FSM in reducing GHG’s in its energy sector.

The 11 sites have been identified by the Government of FSM. These sites were selected based on advice from President’s Office This project will further allow FSM to move forward to broader scale adoption of such technologies reducing carbon footprints in line with the Energy Policy and Climate Change Policy of the nation.  

Implementing Partner: The Pacific Community (SPC)
