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:
This TOR covers the implementation of remaining activities and outputs under Component 1 towards achieving Outcome 1: Improved awareness and attitude towards sustainable RE & EE technology applications in the public, commercial and energy sectors.
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 evaluation will provide information on the relevance and impacts of the training programs in meeting the training needs. It should also guide the improvement of the capacity development program to make it more responsive to the capacity development needs in the coming years in view of the provisions of the Energy Act that will also be promulgated.
This Output will include the following resulting from the various components of the FASNETT Project regarding the awareness aspects:
The design and implementation of the information dissemination and promotion program shall involve various innovative strategies to facilitate generation of useful database to various end-users, the expedient exchange of information using the internet, website and utilization of tri-media for promotion and outreach RE/EE campaign.

This will involve development and facilitation of the approval of a follow-up and sustainability plan for the continuing post-project capacity development program and information dissemination to achieve the goals of the emission reduction through the use of RE/EE technologies in Tuvalu. The report will highlight the best practices, lessons learned and recommendations for sustainability and post-project planning in the aspects of capacity building and awareness.
