firma cuba italiaOn the morning of May 28, Cuba’s Ministry of Energy and Mines (Minem) signed a memorandum of understanding with Italy’s Ministry of Environment, Sea, and Land, to promote the use of safe, clean energies.

The document is aimed at expanding collaborative efforts to strengthen and coordinate joint efforts in the struggle against climate change, mitigate its adverse effects, protect natural resources by reducing vulnerabilities and achieve a sustainable, low-carbon economy.

Rosell Guerra Campaña, director of Minem’s Renewable Energies department, who signed the memorandum on behalf of Cuba, explained that now work will begin to propose joint projects to improve electrical services in some of the island’s rural areas through the use of solar technology.

We hope that this memorandum will become a positive example of bilateral cooperation and make an important contribution to Cuba’s development through renewable energy and the efficient use of electricity, highlighted Guerra Campaña.

Signing for Italy was Director General of the Ministry of Environment, Sea, and Land, Francesco La Camera, who was accompanied by Andrea Ferrari, the country’s ambassador to Cuba.
