LEADERSHIP is a critical tool in addressing issues concerning renewable energy and energy efficiency and having good political leaders can help steer the country in a positive direction on issues concerning energy.

International Union for Conservation of Nature, energy program co-ordinator Anare Matakiviti said in order for countries to shift from a carbon base economy to a low carbon base one, there should be good leaders.

He said there was a great need for a fixing regulation regime on renewable energy and energy efficiency and extraordinary actions needed to be taken such as having new conversations on the issue.

"We need to work towards the sustainable energy sector, we need to look at what we are doing and ask ourselves are we doing the right thing," Mr Matakiviti said.
