The Sustainable Energy Industry Association of the Pacific Islands (SEIAPI) was formed in 2010 with the mission to create an enabling environment for the growth of sustainable energy business entities and sustainable energy equipment and/or energy services in the Pacific Islands.
Its members comprise of: sustainable energy businesses and utilities located in the Pacific Islands; companies outside the Pacific Islands who provide products and services into the Pacific Island countries and territories; training Institutes and Universities; government departments along with multi-lateral and bi-later donors.
It was initially established through funding support provided by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEP) and SEIAPI is currently managed by an executive committee comprising individuals from 6 countries. SEIAPI has a very close working relationship with the Pacific Power Association (PPA).
SEIAPI has been on the forefront in making the Sustainable Energy Industry Development Project (SEIDP) funded by the World Bank to be accessible to the Pacific Island Countries that are SEIAPI and PPA members. As part of SEIDP, industry guidelines on sustainable energy topics have been developed and guideline workshops have taken place in 15 countries in 2018, which are going to be held again in 2019/2020 on a wide range of topics that will help the Pacific Technicians/Engineers to build capacity on Renewable Energy technologies, especially Solar PV. Also, 12 unit standards been accredited as micro-qualifications on the Pacific Qualifications Framework through EQAP, followed by others which are currently in the process of development.
