Abstract: Reports on a mission to the Cook Islands in November 2004 for the Pacific Rural Renewable Energy France-Australia Common Endeavour (PREFACE) Project. During this mission, a sub-regional workshop on wind energy was conducted in Mangaia; an introduction to biomass resource assessment was provided; a wave gauge was deployed off the south-eastern coast of Rarotonga; and discussions were held on other energy related issues. Deployment of the wave gauge will permit logging of data sets to substantiate wave energy potential at this site, in the lead-up to a full feasibility study. A photo essay illustrating testing and deployment of the wave gauge is included.
