NEW PHOTOVOLTAIC SCHEME FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

The government of Seychelles in partnership with the United Nations Program for Development and the Global Environment Facility have launched a PV rebate scheme for the commercial sector.

The project is in support of the government’s 20/20 target of generating 20% of the country’s energy from renewable energy rather that relying on petroleum products. A similar scheme is in place for the residential sector whereby excess electricity produced is sold to the Public Utilities Corporation.

The Project Manager for the new scheme, Dominic Rasool said the scheme is offering up to 80 thousand rupees for the first 16 kilowatt installed as the rates have been very well defined in a workshop. It is estimated that in the years to come more businesses in the country will invest in solar photovoltaic panels.  Mr. Rasool said “we hope that people will adopt photovoltaic to reduce their electricity cost; increasing the profitability in business and of course reducing emissions; so cleaner businesses and greater energy security.”

The joint project is being managed in Seychelles by the Program Coordination Unit.  The global financial rebate scheme is one of the results of the financial mechanisms developed under the project.

CALLS FOR BETTER MONITORING OF PROJECTS IN DISTRICTS

The National Assembly has asked the government to put in place a better monitoring system for small projects in the districts.

The elected member for Anse Aux Pins, Mr. Meggy Marie said this will ensure that payment is made after the concerned authorities have confirmed their approval that the work is up to standard. He added that this will also ensure that public money is well spent.

Members who intervened on the motion said that supervision is fundamental where these projects are concerned. They also said there are too many different groups involved in small projects in the districts. They said that there should be one single entity overseeing all the projects in the district.

BLUE ECONOMY WILL BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF NATIONAL STAKEHOLDER DIALOGUE

The blue economy concept will be discussed in a National Stakeholder Dialogue to take place between the 9th to 10th December at the international conference.

The President of the republic, Mr. James Michel will officially open the meeting. A Press Release from State House says the participants will discuss on the relevance of the development of Seychelles in the context of the blue economy. It quotes the President as saying that, “Seychelles has been at the forefront in pushing the blue economy concept onto the agenda of the international community as a recognition of the priorities of small islands developing states.”

The National Stakeholders Dialogue will seek to inform all stakeholders as well as sensitize all parties on the stride being made in all sectors involved in the blue economy and to get insight into the continued development potential of these sectors. The 2 day conference will also encourage pragmatic approaches; identify possible conflict and propose resolutions by promoting dialogue between various stakeholders in different key fields pertaining to the blue economy.
