DHInfrastructure led a team of national and international technical consultants to carry out an assessment of the renewable energy integration potential in the country, as well as a financial analysis of potential renewable energy integration technology options. DHInfrastructure then evaluated the economic and financial viability of each renewable energy integration technology by using financial models. Next, the team agreed on a set of scoring criteria with the Government of Fiji to capture national renewable energy policy goals and used the scoring criteria and the economic and financial analysis to prioritize technologies for the Investment Plan. As a final output, DHInfrastructure developed a complete Investment Plan, which identified specific investment opportunities in transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure, grid management technologies, electrification of the land transport sector, electrification of the maritime transport sector, and energy storage technologies (including battery storage, pumped hydro, and green hydrogen). The Investment Plan also identified potential sources of funding for each opportunity.
