The round also analyzed the expectations of renewable energy contracting prices and the new regulations with Decree 65-23, as well as the declaration of the need for storage published by the CNE in February.

On April 26, 27 and 28, delegations from different Caribbean states compared and discussed the opportunities and challenges presented by the renewable energy markets and the commitments assumed on climate change.

It is worth mentioning the participation of Puerto Rico, whose situation is very similar to that of the Dominican Republic. Its representatives presented the progress made in integrating renewables with storage and the long term arbitration model.

The Dominican delegation was composed of Andrés Astacio, Superintendent of Electricity; Edward Veras, Executive Director of the National Energy Commission (CNE); Roberto Herrera, Country Manager Interenergy; Ricardo Estévez, Development Manager EGEHAINA, and Carolina Silie de Headrick, who served as moderator.
