Potential for clean, renewable energy

Shayal Devi

THERE is enormous potential in the Western Division to harness clean, renewable energy using solar technology, says Fiji National University's College of Engineering, Science and Technology associate dean Dr Anand Tyagi.

Speaking during the World Environment Day celebrations at FNU's Lautoka campus last Thursday, Dr Tyagi said this would help industries in the West.

"Fiji has enormous potential for all types of energy production and the largest portion of electricity comes from hydro power," he said.

"In the West, we can generate so much electricity using solar panels as we are blessed with the natural resources for energy production.

"What we need is to properly harness these resources and unfortunately, this is not happening."
