The European Union has devoted substantial resources, totalling almost Euro 100 million (US 134.6 million) to support the adoption of renewable energy technologies and to promote energy efficiency in small island states in the Pacific since 2008. "The European Union is strongly committed to renewable energy and energy efficiency. Indeed, access to sustainable energy is crucial for education, healthcare, tourism and even for water supply. Access to affordable energy is a country’s main route towards growth and development and a vital area for the Pacific region as a whole," said Mr David O'Sullivan, the Chief Operating Officer of the European External Action Service.
