Re-imagining Fiji's regulatory reforms for renewable energy: the potential of the energy co-operative model

This article will address current gaps in regulatory analysis and argue that current discourse on Fiji’s energy sector reforms requires a paradigm shift. It will be demonstrated that the current paradigms of hard-law energy reform in Fiji are misplaced in their adoption of a state-centric and traditionally-Western approach. As an alternative, this article will explore the viability of the renewable energy co-operative model as a potential institutional and regulatory framework to reform energy regulation in Fiji.
