The Facilitation of the Achievement of Sustainable National Energy Targets of Tuvalu (FASNETT) Project is aimed at facilitating the development and utilization of feasible renewable energy resources and application of energy efficiency technologies for achieving the Government of Tuvalu’s updated target of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from the electricity generation (power) sector by 100% by 2025 based on the country’s INDC in November 2015. According to the NDC Registry, Tuvalu is listed as having submitted a first NDC (which was its iNDC) effective when the Government of Tuvalu became a Party to the Paris Agreement based on Decision 1/CP.21. Currently, Tuvalu plans to enhance its NDC including updating the timeframe for achieving the target from 2025 to 2030. For this TOR, this capacity building activity comes under Outcome 1 and Output 1.3 It entails the design and implementation of a suitable capacity development program for DOE, TEC and key stakeholder groups on energy services performance contracting to meet the 100% GHG reduction target, energy integrated energy planning, application of EE/RE technologies operation and maintenance, and techniques and practices for sustainable development, based on the conclusions and recommendations of the updated needs assessment. The facilitation or enabling objective is meant to address, i.e., eliminate the identified RE/EE awareness and capacity barriers to the cost-effective application of RE technologies using the country’s indigenous RE resources, as well in the effective and extensive application of EE measures and techniques. Outcome 1 will be achieved through the implementation of:
Component 1: Awareness Raising on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Applications of the Project. The other components are:
Components 2 (Energy Policy Improvement and Institutional Capacity Building);
Component 3 (Applications of Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Technologies & Techniques) and Component 4 (Financing of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Initiatives).
The Project is financially supported through the GEF (USD 2,639,725) and co-financed by the UNDP (USD 250,000), the Government of Tuvalu (USD 8,250,000) and Tuvalu Electricity Corporation (USD 7,400,000).

The second part is Activity 1.3.2, which is to identify the relevant topics that are RE/EE and climate change mitigation related and integrate them to the school curricula in coordination with the relevant agencies involved in the education system in Tuvalu. This awareness and capacity development program will enable the public and targeted users particularly starting with secondary students taking up appropriate RE/EE and climate change subjects in school curricula, to become aware, knowledgeable and able to disseminate the understanding of RE/EE technologies and their economic and environmental benefits to their families and the communities in those areas, in line with the said Government’s National Energy goals. The awareness and capacity building program should cover the following;
The design, organization and conduct of this awareness and capacity development program will be undertaken by the National Consultant (NC) with the active guidance of the International Consultant (IC) working in tandem as defined in this TOR.
