SIDS to Strive for New Goal of 10 GW Renewable Energy Installed Capacity by 2030
- In 2021, the total mounted renewable capacity for SIDS stood at 6533 MW, a boost from 6141 MW in 2020.
Regarding the extra renewable energy capacity for all the SIDS is worried, solar power claimed the maximum share of all the resources, with 392 MW between 2020 to 2021. Nonetheless, from 2018 to 2019, the RE capacity installed has slid from 931 MW in 2018 to 2019 to 392 MW in 2020-2021.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has released its report entitled, 'SIDS Lighthouses Initiative: Progress and also way ahead'.
The report puts a focus on the necessity to deal with the effect of climate change on Small Island Creating States (SIDS). At the 27th conference of the United Nations Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP27), kept in Sharm
El Sheikh in November 2022, nations agreed to establish a details fund on loss and damage for vulnerable countries, including SIDS.
The SIDS LHI was gone for the United Nations (UN) Climate Summit in 2014 in action to the SIDS' require action for support to achieve the purposes outlined by the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway.
SIDS RE Goals
The initiative brings together 40 SIDS from the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and also South China Sea (AIS) areas, in addition to 37 various other companions, including developed nations, regional and also worldwide organisations, growth partners, exclusive companies, study institutes, and also non-profit organisations. In 2022, Curacao, Australia, the Netherlands, Akuo, the Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator, the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States, signed up with as new companions.
The initial LHI targets for 2020 and 2023 have actually been met as well as surpassed ahead of schedule. SIDS and companions of the initiative have now consented to a new target of 10 gigawatts (GW) of installed renewable energy capacity by 2030.
Complete Mounted RE capacity of SIDS in 2021
In the Caribbean region, Dominican Republic has reported an installed capacity of 1532 MW. Cuba had 1281 MW of installed capacity. British Virgin Islands, Montserrat, Turks as well as Caicos Islands mounted just 1 MW each.
In the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea area, Singapore reported 651 MW of mounted capacity as well as Mauritiushad 246 MW. Comoros set up just 1 MW of capacity.
In the Pacific region, Papua New Guinea mounted 335 MW of capacity, Fiji had actually set up 220 MW. Niue set up simply 1 MW.
Complete Set Up RE Capacity by Technology for all SIDS
In 2021, the total installed renewable capacity stood at 6533 MW, a rise from 6141 MW in 2020.
Regarding the added renewable energy capacity for all the SIDS is concerned, solar energy claimed the optimal share of all the resources with 392 MW between 2020 to 2021. Nevertheless, from 2018 to 2019, the RE capacity mounted has actually slid from 931 MW in 2018 to 2019 to 392 MW in 2020-2021.
