Cuba is expanding its sources of green energy with the construction of new solar panel parks.
About 50 biodigesters will be installed this year in Las Tunas in farms dedicated to raising pigs, In line with the national purposes of protecting the environment and expanding the use of renewable sources of energy.
Cuba will build bioelectric plant, associated to a sugar factory and an eolic park of 50 MW through a credit given by India, affirmed here the Cuban minister of Energy and Mines, Raúl García Barreiro.
The renewable energy generated by photovoltaic panels receives an important boost in Las Tunas with the synchronization to the National Electric Power System of the third park of this type and the first constructive actions of the fourth one, which must be completed by the end of this year.
The construction of a center for research, training and development of technologies in the field of renewable energy sources was announced at the University of Las Tunas by Daniel Rodríguez Peña, director of the Center for Studies on Energy Efficiency and Technological Processes (CEEPROT), of the institution.
Las Tunas.- The eastern province of Las Tunas can become one of the first in Cuba to change its energy matrix if the program for the implementation of solar and wind parks is fulfilled.
With a view toward seeking means to generate electricity with less dependence on fossil fuels (basically oil, coal and natural gas), to reduce environmental pollution and mitigate the effects of climate change, renewable energy sources are receiving greater attention worldwide.
JESÚS MENÉNDEZ, Las Tunas.— Promoting the use of renewable energy sources is today a focus in many countries across the world. Seeking to protect the environment and reduce the impact of electricity generation on the economy, Cuba is also committed to this viable, sustainable alternative.
