Cuba Commits to Renewable Energy in Astana

ASTANA – Cuba has pledged to sharply increase its use of renewable energy by 2030, the president of the Cuban Chamber of Commerce said on Wednesday in the Kazakh capital, where it was Cuba Day at Expo Astana 2017.

“Our expectations for the year 2030 is that we will reach 24 percent of our energy production coming from renewable energy sources, thus replacing 1.75 million tons of fuel, which would mean we would stop emitting 6 million tons of carbon dioxide every year,” Orlando Nicolas Hernandez said.

“We are here at the Expo to learn, to familiarize ourselves with the experiences of other countries and to learn about the most advanced technologies. This will allow us to reach our 2030 goal,” he said.

Kazakh Deputy Foreign Minister Akylbek Kamaldinov hailed Havana’s commitment to renewables and said it was in line with the Expo’s theme, Future Energy.

“We believe there is a great potential for further cooperation between Kazakhstan and Cuba in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency,” Kamaldinov said.

The president of the Cuban Chamber of Commerce also spoke of the downturn of bilateral relations between Cuba and the United States since Donald Trump took office in Washington.

“The US president announced by way of a show (a speech to Cuban exiles in Miami) that we are returning to the times of more direct confrontation with my country and that some of the advances made in the process of normalization would be reversed,” Hernandez said.

“Any strategy aimed at changing the political, economic, or social system in Cuba through pressure or sanctions is doomed to failure. Cuba has the determination of its people and the support of the international community against this unjust, obsolete and repudiated policy,” he added.

Cuba’s National Day is being celebrated at Expo Astana with a musical performance and will conclude with a parade in the Latin American Pavilion.
