According to the head of the National Energy Secretariat (SNE), Jorge Rivera, the Covid-19 pandemic and now the war conflict between Russia and Ukraine show that programs with the use of solar and wind energy must be prioritized, besides promoting electricity saving, which is also valid for the citizens.

In this regard, the official revealed that, in order to counteract the negative effects caused by the crisis, the SNE is intensifying measures to reduce energy consumption in transportation, homes, buildings and State institutions.

Some of these initiatives are actions to raise awareness about the importance of energy saving, through a more rational use of private vehicles or moderation in the use of energy for air conditioning.

In this regard, the president of the Panamanian Chamber of Solar Energy, Rafael Galue, explained the scope of sustainable energy planning to the press.

At a forum on solar thermal energy and energy efficiency, held in Panama City this week, the expert praised the fact that the strategy seeks the good use of natural resources, the protection of the environment and the incorporation of low-carbon energy sources.
