Panama has vast potential to develop renewables. The National Energy Plan suggests that as much as 70% of the country’s energy supply could be renewable by 2050.
Panama engaged with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to carry out a flexibility analysis for the power system considering a high penetration of Variable Renewable Energy (VRE).
As part of its engagement in Latin America IRENA undertook the Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) Panama. A high-level event took place in Panama City for the launch of the report, which included government officials from various institutions, and representatives from the private sector, industry and academia.
Upgrades to Panama’s regulatory environment and power system management are critical to achieving the renewable energy goals set out in the country’s National Energy Plan, per a Renewables Readiness Assessment Panama report.
IRENA’s regulatory component of the CECCA initiative has found that despite the deployment of wind and solar PV in Panama in recent years, project developers remain uncertain about existing and future investment incentives for these technologies in the country.
IRENA welcomes Signatory States No. 111-114 on 26 June 2009. The number of Signatories who will take part in the decision making process of the second Preparatory Commission on 29-30 June 2009 in Sharm El-Sheikh increased to 114 only three days before the conference.
