Energy Snapshot - Micronesia

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


This profile provides a snapshot of the energy landscape of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), a sovereign nation and U.S.-associated state in the western Pacific Ocean. The FSM is made up of more than 600 islands, which presents a significant challenge of delivering electricity to people living on outer islands. The country is striving to overcome electricity access needs, reduce high energy costs, and ensure energy security. Currently, almost all of the electricity produced in Micronesia is dependent upon imported petroleum based fossil fuels, with some solar photovoltaic systems in operation.
