The centre addresses gaps in the current effort to address existing barriers and strengthen drivers for sustainable energy markets, industries and innovation through regional methodologies and tools. It addresses RE&EE holistically and in a balanced way. The character of the centre is exclusively technical. PCREEE will position itself as “one stop shop” that will deliver sustainable and reliable energy solutions appropriate to PICTs. The centre focuses on the up-scaling and replication of national efforts in the areas of capacity development, knowledge management and innovation, awareness raising, as well as investment and business promotion. The centre has a strong private sector and industry focus and will support targeted RE&EE programs to enhance the productivity of key industries with high job leverage (e.g. agriculture, tourism, fishery, manufacturing, creative industry) and the creation of a local sustainable energy servicing and manufacturing industry.
