Cuba – Energy Seminar (26-27 November 2009)

The Cuban Government has indicated that they would welcome entering commercial discussions with UK firms in the energy sector (both renewable and conventional).  They have expressed a particular interest in the following areas: Biomass from sugar cane; Forest biomass; biogas from organic residues from agriculture and cattle; Thermal; Solar, Wind power, and Hydro energy. They are also interested in learning about possible financing solutions for renewable energy projects and about carbon trading and carbon emissions licensing.  They also have an interest in working with companies from the UK oil and gas sector.

To this end, a UK business organisation, the Cuba Initiative, has agreed to organise a high-level energy seminar in Havana at the end of November which will be an opportunity for UK companies to showcase their services / products to a high level audience in Cuba.  The event is being supported by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and will be co-hosted with the Cuban Ministry of Basic Industries.

Participants from the Cuban side will be senior figures in the energy and renewable energy sectors that are members of the 15 National Working Groups, which are responsible for developing Cuban energy policy.

If your company is interested in working in Cuba and you would be interested in participating in the seminar, please contact Chris Bennett at the Cuba Initiative for further information.  Tel. 0207 235 9484 or email.  More information about the Cuba Initiative can be found at their website:
