COOPERATION IN DEVELOPMENT OF CLEAN ENERGY SYSTEMS IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Energy Experts Now (EEN) and The meeco Group have recently announced having joined forces in the development and installation and operations of solar energy projects in the Dominican Republic.
A decade ago, the Dominican Republic set a goal to be 85% renewable by 2035. Since that date, various large projects have been unveiled, nonetheless the country’s energy efficiency target is in the lower scale yet and many opportunities remain unexplored, particularly in the private and commercial sector. With the very high energy cost affecting businesses and households, the demand to benefit from the free source of energy obtainable from sun, is in-creasing every day. With a yield in the range of 1607 and 1826 kWh/kWp yearly, this is all more reason for the population of the Dominican Republic to harvest the sun.
Caribbean islands offer perfect conditions for renewable energy solutions.
