This article shows how Fiji has been trying to meet the challenge of using renewable sources to supply sufficient energy for its sustainable development and well-being. The country’s heavy dependence on imported fossil fuel is one of the most serious development issues it faces. The strategies and action plans the government and the corporate sector have adopted to meet this challenge are examined. It is argued that training and capacity building remain major challenges. Further, the country’s two leading tertiary institutions should give greater importance to developing coherent and comprehensive training and education programs to produce the people power required for the region’s renewable energy development.
