Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country in the world and is aiming to have 100% generation of electricity through renewable sources by 2020. IUCN, with assistance from the Governments of Austria and Italy, helped to achieve this vision.



This video highlights a hybrid solar power system installed on Vaitupu, the largest island in Tuvalu and home to the only government secondary school. Due to its success, the government is looking to replicate the project on six other outer islands of Tuvalu.
