The programme will help Small Island Developing States (SIDS) shift from reliance on imported diesel to renewable energy. The project will include feasibility studies on the expansion of renewable energy coverage, power utility management reform and private sector engagement by identifying opportunities for independent power providers. The GCF website states that "The programme will also assist the Cook Islands install battery storage which will help spur private sector investment to pave the way towards Cook Islands' national target of 100 percent renewable energy by 2020."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
