January 18 (Renewables Now) – The Dominican Republic’s Energy Commission (CNE) is in the process of receiving new requests for the country’s provisional concessions for wind and photovoltaic generation projects, CNE executive director Angel Cano said last week.
The year 2019 promises the development of renewable energy in the Dominican Republic with both domestic and foreign investors showing interest in local projects, Cano said.
The country’s wind farms Matafongo, Agua Clara and El Guanillo are set to become operational in the first quarter of 2019. Several other PV and wind projects are in the last development phase.
Last year, the Ministry of Mines and Energy announced that concessions for renewable projects would be awarded through a bidding process.
