Sunergise Wins Energy Globe National Award
Sunergise is pleased to announce the acceptance of the Energy Globe 2019 National Award for Fiji.
Established a decade ago, the award is described as ‘The World’s Most Prestigious Environmental Award’ with over 6000 project entries from more than 178 countries.
Sunergise was recognised for work to bring renewable power to remote Pacific Island communities implemented in partnership with Energy Fiji Limited and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation along with support from the British high commission, the Fiji Government and the Fiji Locally Managed Area Network.
The initiative at Vio marks the arrival of a new era of clean, cost-efficient energy in the Pacific. It is the first of many as part of the Fiji Rural Electrification Fund supported by Hollywood A-list celebrity and climate champion Leonardo DiCaprio.
The award is particularly timely as it coincides with the global release of Ice on Fire, Leonardo DiCaprio’s new climate change documentary which highlights solutions to the issue.
Sunergise Founder Ajay Raniga says, ‘It is an honour to see Sunergise being recognised for work to bring renewable to Fiji and the Pacific Islands. We acknowledge the vision and support of Energy Fiji Limited, the Fiji Government and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.’
