The CoP21 agreement and the National Determined Commitments (NDC) require 100% Renewable Energy (RE) by 2030; which implies an increase RE generation of 73 GWh by 2030.

Achieving these ambitious RE objectives will require not one but a mix of renewable technologies; there are a handful of renewable ressources available in Efaté.

The resulting energy mix would be

58% coprah oil

19% wind

16% solar

7% biomass/incineration
