Launching of the NUS Renewable Energy Plan 2021-2025

This year’s 2021 United Nations annual climate change conference or COP26, will fundamentally be “a carbon-neutral conference, with sustainability at its core, that will leave a positive legacy.” The COP26 represents a global commitment to act against climate change and secure a future for generations to come by moving towards a low carbon, cleaner and greener environment. On the 1st of November, Samoa also launched a series of public awareness activities in climate change combat, environmental protection and conservation measures, to open the Samoa National Environment Week 2021.

In support of COP26 and Environment Week, the National University of Samoa is pleased to announce the launch of its Renewable Energy Plan 2021-2025 on the 10th of November, 2021.

NUS is committed to becoming a “self-sustaining University, refining energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions for improved carbon neutrality.” The University aims to achieve this commitment through the use of renewable energy, by installation of solar panels across Le Papaigalagala campus as the initial pilot project.

The Renewable Energy Plan, made possible through collaborative efforts with various energy stakeholders, was developed to educate, raise awareness and implement the University’s commitment to sustainability, together with staff, students and stakeholders. 

The launch of the Renewable Energy Plan 2021-2025 will be celebrated with a light morning tea at the NUS Niule’a Building on the 10th November 2021at 10AM.
