Fiji produces about 40–70% of its grid electricity from renewable resources. In 2015, 934 GWh of electricity was generated with an associated GHG emission of 397 Gg CO2-e. Fiji is committed to reducing its GHG emissions and increasing renewable energy (RE) share in electricity generation. In this work, various scenarios are developed using Long-Range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) tool with the aim of reducing emissions and increasing RE share in electricity production for the period 2015–2040. The analysis reveals 100% RE share in generation is possible at investment costs ranging from USD1.6–3.2 billion.
