This report describes how the Republic of the Marshall Islands relies on imported petroleum products for 90% of its primary energy supply but is looking to increase the share of renewables in its energy mix and achieve 100% electrification by 2020. The report explains how such an envisaged energy transformation requires greater use of off-grid solar power.
