Cuba Saved 33,000 tons of Fuel in 2018

With the aim of transforming its energy model by 2024, the Caribbean nation expects to generate 24 percent of its electricity through renewable sources like sugarcane biomass, solar panels, wind farms and small hydroelectric plants.

An ambitious plan to develop renewable energy sources until 2030 allowed Cuba to save almost 33,000 tons of fuel last year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Currently photovoltaic solar generation contributes 1.15 percent of the country’s total electricity consumption and this year it is expected that 52,199 tons of fuel will be saved.
