Ministro de Energía y Minas dice apagones son por averías

Minister of Energy and Mines says blackouts are due to breakdowns

The Minister of Energy and Mines of the Dominican Republic, Anthony Almonte, assured today that the country has an amount of energy much higher than the demand and that the blackouts that are taking place in a large part of the national territory are due to breakdowns.

After concluding his participation in the Regional Climate Change Week, he said that the Government is “sensitive” to the blackouts that affect the population.

“In recent times the country has had an amount of energy available that is much higher than the demand, so blackouts are localized and it is due to faults that can occur in a circuit due to overload or poor network connections. We are sensitive to this situation and we are working, that is why I was telling you that the massive investment program that we are going to carry out, in the rest of this year”.

The official assured that the prospects for the electricity sector are positive for the remainder of the year with the installation of a large number of new megawatts based on natural gas.

Almonte said that the Dominican Republic is introducing technologies that would place the country at the forefront of the use of gas of hydrogen to produce electricity,” he said.

The Latin American and Caribbean Climate Week (LACCW 2022) began in Santo Domingo with a strong call for regional action to drive global action to address climate change.

The call did not lack warnings about the growing climatic effects in the region, such as the increased frequency of floods, droughts and storms.

The person in charge of opening the opening ceremony was Louis Abinader, President of the Dominican Republic, who was accompanied by ministers from 21 countries in the region and officials from the main UN agencies and other multilateral organizations.

The LACCW 2022 will last until July 22 and represents an important step for the region towards achieving an effective result at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP27), which will take place next November in Egypt.

The event has convened some 2,000 key players from across Latin America and the Caribbean to collaborate, address risks and seize opportunities in the region, with leaders from the public and private sectors and the civil society collaborating on specific climate action policies and programs.

These statements were offered when interviewed by Moisés González from the digital newspaper Despertar Nacional.
