Cuba to Increase Electric Power Generation by 2030

A change in the electric power matrix will allow Cuba to increase its own energy production from 4 to 24 percent of the total by 2030, said an expert from the Cuban Energy and Mining Ministry on Wednesday.

Ramsés Montes, the Ministry director, in an interview with Prensa Latina, said that this transformation will be possible due to an increase in the use of renewable energy, which together with previous Cuban energy sources will ensure the generation of 7,245 gigawatts in the year 2030.

Montes, who is taking part in the 7th Latin-American and Caribbean Seminar of Energy Efficiencyin Uruguay, stated that this increase will concentrate on three sources of renewable energy.

He mentioned that bio-electricity companies will generate electricity from the biomass from cane. Nine-teen facilities of this type will be constructed and will produce 755 megawatts.
