    The goal of the NAMA is to achieve wide‐spread adoption of alternative energy technologies and address waste management in the tourism sector.

    Activities: (2013 - 2020)
    Modules of the NAMA are:

    • Modular (distributed) biomass facilities in high‐density touristic areas.
    • Medium‐scale refuse‐derived fuel (RDF) and biomass densified fuel (BDF) facilities
    • Renewable energy solutions that are expected to lower energy costs for the tourism sector.

    Activities include:

    • Pilot projects that demonstrate the technical and economic viability of the alternative energy technologies (helping to address technology risk),
    • Government efforts to streamline the permitting process,
    • A financial mechanism that reduces or eliminates the need for an up‐front equity investment, structures the financial deal such that the hotel

    sees net benefits starting in the first year, and enables transaction costs to be incorporated into the larger financial package;

    • The support from local people and small companies which can participate as fuel suppliers, increasing the socioeconomic co‐benefits of the project.
