Case summary

Under the National Energy Policy and to address the challenges associated with fossil fuel dependence, the Marshall Islands implemented its outer island solar project, setting a target of 100% renewable energy electrification. The project resulted in 95% solar electrification of all outer island public facilities and households and, building on that success, the Marshall Islands has adopted a target for the rest of the island of 20% renewable energy electrification by 2020.
