OFID loan to help build solar power plants in Cuba
 

The Director-General of OFID (The OPEC Fund for International Development) Suleiman J Al-Herbish has signed a public sector loan agreement with partner country Cuba for a project aimed at improving access to renewable energy sources.

The US$45 million loan will co-finance along with government support the Solar Energy Development project, which includes the construction of two solar photovoltaic power plants in the country’s eastern region and aims to enhance power systems and energy efficiency through the increased use of solar powered appliances.

Co-signing the agreement was Marieta Garca Jordn, Chargé d’affaires of the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba in Vienna. Garca Jordn thanked the Director-General for OFID’s support which began in 2002 and comprises a total of US$228.5 million in public sector lending, of which US$77 million has been directed to the energy sector.

Al-Herbish said: "Improved access to energy is critical for development, and the alleviation of energy poverty underpins the achievement of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Our energy-water-food nexus approach to development recognizes the complex interlinkages between and within sectors. This project fits with our strategic priorities and we are proud to help improve living standards for the people of Cuba."
