Panama reaches record levels of clean energy use

Panama City, Nov 3 (Prensa Latina) Panama reached 97 percent of the use of clean sources for electricity generation in September, the National Energy Secretariat (SNE) reported on Thursday.

The document, citing data from the National Authority of Public Services, stated that this indicator surpassed that achieved in July when the country registered 95 percent of energy from renewable sources.

The SNE stressed that these results come from the progress of the government’s program on the national energy transition.

It also pointed out that in the ninth month of this year, 91.09 percent of clean energy came from hydraulic sources (water), and 5.82 percent was generated by photovoltaic and wind (sun and wind). In comparison, only 3.09 percent corresponded to other sources.

Panama has been internationally recognized as the eighth clean energy-generating country.

At present, it promotes climate actions to develop strategies such as reducing energy poverty and progressively achieving electric mobility.
