“Transitioning to a sustainable system is in the country’s best long-term interest,” says Alexander Ochs, Director of Climate and Energy at Worldwatch and the director of the study. “This Roadmap provides decision makers and stakeholders in the Dominican Republic with the technical, socioeconomic, financial, and policy analysis needed to guide the country’s further transition to an electricity system that works.”
Revisions: In Spanish Roadmap, corrected key for Figures 6.1 and 6.2.
About the Sustainable Energy Roadmaps
By collaborating with local stakeholders, the Worldwatch Institute has produced Sustainable Energy Roadmaps for several countries and world regions. Combining technical analysis, socio-economic modeling, investment analysis, and policy assessment, the Roadmaps result in concrete implementation plans that empower nations to reduce local pollution, greenhouse gases, long-term energy costs, and dependence on fossil fuel imports, and to create new social and economic opportunity while supporting environmental integrity.
Harnessing the Dominican Republic’s Sustainable Energy Resources was made possible with significant financial support from the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. The report was produced in close cooperation with the National Energy Commission (CNE), the Ministry of Energy and Mines, and other governmental agencies of the Dominican Republic.
