The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) together with DNV GL is assisting Seychelles in setting up the national electricity grid code, which will remove barriers, and unlock access to bigger funds.

As part of the assistance, the working session took place in the Eden Island and was attended by the Minister for Environment, Energy and Climate Change, board members and management personnel of the Public Utilities Corporation, representatives from DNV GL, local electrical contractors, and solar photovoltaic installers.

The main aim of the meeting was to enlighten the stakeholders on the set of guidelines and standards that users must follow before connecting a facility to the electricity network.

A grid code is a technical specification which defines the parameters of a facility – an electricity generating plant, or a consumer – connected to an electric network has to meet to ensure safe, secure and economic proper functioning of the electric system.
