Professor Alfredo Roque, a researcher at the Center for Physics of the Atmosphere of the Institute of Meteorology (Insmet), told local newspaper Granma that the Caribbean nation has the most favorable conditions for the development of this renewable energy source (FRE).

In this sense, he argued that the archipelago presents few environmental obstacles that hinder the use of the intensity of the breezes, and said that studies confirm the existence of 21 areas that meet the requirements for the installation of wind farms.

Roque said that climate projections suggest that surface wind speed will increase to a greater or lesser extent in the 21st century in most of the national territory, which confirms the priority given to the implementation of the Cuban wind program until 2030.

By then, the construction of 13 such sites is planned, which should increase energy contribution to the national grid and help eliminate dependence on fossil fuels. Currently, only 0.1 percent of the country’s electricity is generated by this means, according to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Planning, Alejandro Gil, at the most recent session of the Cuban National Assembly (parliament).
