This conference aims to build a pilot project to demonstrate a clean geothermal power solution for off-grid use in the South Pacific. The long term aim is to integrate multiple uses of naturally available geothermal heat for electric power, cooling solutions and providing fresh water and other direct heat uses to local communities. The Conference is taking place in Nadi, Viti Levu between the 25.09 to 29.09. 2016. Following by a three days field trip to Vanua Levu, which is the second biggest island of the Fiji archipelago and features the main manifestations of geothermal hot spring activity.The geothermal potential of the island has been estimated high enough to provide clean power for the two main islands. There is, however, no geothermal plant operating to date.

The field trip to Vanua Levu will be reached by bus and ferry from Nadi.

Pilot Project A+B: Geothermal Refrigeration and Freezing Facility at Savusavu and Waikatakata Hot Spring, Natewa

 

Project A is on-grid Project B is off-grid. The projects cover a central refrigeration facility for Savusavu and off-grid for Natewa Village and surrounding villages (1000 people). Project A has a higher economic potential, whereas project B is of higher social humanitarian relevance to improve the health and living conditions. There is no electricity and chiller available within 90 minutes’ drive of Natewa village.
