Camco is partnering with Pacific Trade Invest New Zealand (PTI NZ) to deliver an informational webinar next week on finding and realising renewable energy opportunities in the Pacific Islands.
The two-hour session on Wednesday (21 July) is targeted at businesses with an interest in the region’s renewable energy sector, as well as investors and members of the wider investment community.
Geoff Sinclair, Camco’s Managing Director, said: “Countries in the Blue Pacific have an abundance of untapped energy sources in the wind, sunshine, tidal and other renewable energy resources. Renewables have the potential to tap into this and transform the energy landscape, reducing the dependence on the expensive and polluting diesel that has to be imported.”
“Governments and businesses in Pacific Island Countries are making real efforts in transitioning to renewable energy solutions. As these become increasingly competitive on price, it is crucial for decision makers to have all the information about what solutions are available, what could be suitable for them, what opportunities exist to finance projects and how to take advantage of them.”
Trade Commissioner Glynis Miller said PTI NZ, an agency of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, was acutely aware of the urgent need for clean energy in the Blue Pacific.
“Supporting the efforts of Pacific Island Countries by providing the tools to highlight resources available for investment in renewable energy projects is what we do,” she added.
“Camco has an immense wealth of knowledge and experience in such a specialised field. Hearing directly from them about how your business or country can find opportunities for renewable energy projects as well as obtaining funding will be highly valuable.”
The webinar will be held on Wednesday 21 July – from 1.00 to 3.00pm NZST. For more information and to register for free visit: www.pacifictradeinvest.co.nz/investment-webinars
