Ministry Launches Online Forum

In a bid to further complement aware­ness and information sharing, the Ministry of Energy has developed the online Renewable Energy Central Infor­mation Forum.

The Ministry is working with the sup­port from the United Nations Develop­ment Programme and the Global Envi­ronment Facility.

This was revealed by Minister for Local Government, Housing, Environment, In­frastructure and Transport Parveen Bala, who officiated at the Energy Forum Web­site launch in Nadi yesterday. He said, “Through this Forum, we will be able to reach out to the public and provide spe­cific information relating to renewable energy and energy efficiency in Fiji.

“Our intention is to encourage further action which will support the Govern­ment’s strategy to increase the use of renewable energy and expand energy efficiency in Fiji. The website can be ac­cessed through www.REINFOFIJI.com.fj.

2018 School Energy Saver competition

The minister launched the 2018 edition of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Energy Conservation and Efficiency Programme.

Mr Bala said there has been an increase in the number of schools that participated in the Schools Energy Saver Competition since 2010. He said, “Competitions are usually in the form of Poster, Energy Au­dit and Renewable Energy Model aiming to broaden students’ knowledge on energy issues particularly those we face locally.”

It is a good learning platform to show­case your artistic skills, innovative ideas, concepts and knowledge on the different technologies and methods that can be ex­plored to transform the energy sector. The competition theme is Energy Efficiency Smarter Way to Reduce Carbon Emission.
