Since 2011 the Pacific Power Association (PPA), the Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility (PRIF) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) have been working in partnership to support performance benchmarking exercises in the power utilities. This involves 25 electric power utilities in 20 PICTs.

The PPA leads the implementation of the benchmarking work; PRIF provides technical assistance for capacity building in the utilities and analysing the data; and SPC makes the data available to stakeholders and the community through the Pacific Regional Data Repository (PRDR), the Country Energy Profiles it publishes, and other avenues.
