Sustainable Future through Renewable Energy 

The IX International Renewable Energy Conference, Energy Saving and Energy Education (CIER 2017) will take place 31st May – 2nd June 2017 at the Hotel Habana Libre, Havana, Cuba hosted by The Study Centre for Renewable Energy Technologies (CETER).

The current focus on Cuba’s renewable energy sector is ambitious with the Government proposing to boost investment in the sector by USD 3.5 billion in order to reach its goal of generating 24 per cent of its power from renewable energy by 2030.

CIER 2017 will bring together hundreds of scientists, engineers, manufactures, investors, policy makers, energy users and other specialists from across the entire international renewable energy spectrum to exchange knowledge, debate and analyse the global efforts currently being carried out in the field. This is all with the objective of intensifying the introduction of renewable energy technologies and promoting synergies towards the challenge of achieving sustainable energy development across Cuba and the Caribbean.
