The first-ever Clean Energy Workshop and Pacific Women in Energy Conference finished today in Suva.
The Workshop and Conference were in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community to support the Pacific’s climate adaptation efforts and clean energy transition.
The event featured signing for a $100,000 biogas project to promote clean energy use in the Pacific.
Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Energy Resources Laura Lochman says the biogas project will expand access to affordable and reliable clean energy.
She adds the only way to mitigate climate change is through decarbonisation and Pacific countries are on the front-line of this effort.
Biogas involves breaking down organic matter such as animal waste, plant material, sewage and food waste to create environmentally friendly biogas fuel.
