"Because the Pacific Island countries are all small island nations with small power supply networks, it is difficult to provide a stable supply of electricity by simply introducing renewable energy, whose supply can become unstable depending on climate conditions," said by a JICA Senior Advisor, who also works as a chief adviser of the Project for Introduction of Hybrid Power Generation System in the Pacific Island Countries.
Although intruducing renewable energy is expected to be a key of reducing fossil fuel consumption, the amount of power generated is influenced by the weather, which could become unstable.
JICA is now providing technical cooperationm in 5 countries including FSM, Marchall islands, Fiji, Tuvalu, Kiribati, to configure and stably operate hybrid systems that effectively combine renewable energy with diesel generators and storage batteries, if necessary.
