D.R COMPLETES ITS RENEWABLE ENERGY MATRIX

Together with eolic, hydroelectric and solar energy, all biomass-based energy is available to complete and diversify the renewable energy matrix in the Dominican Republic.

The residual biomass is the byproduct or residue produced during all agricultural, silviculture and livestock activity, as well as agribusiness residue. Traditionally, residual biomass has been used for thermal and electric generation in different industry processes nationwide, but its use has been practically limited to self-consumption. For example, in all sugar mills, African Palm oil production plants and coffee industrialization processes.

Now, for the first time ever, the Dominican Republic will feature biomass-based energy within the SENI, after launching the new SPBE mainframe, a company managed by Putney Capital Management and INICIA.

SPBE features a setup capacity of 30MW for phase 1, which can expand all the way to 80MW. For more thorough understanding, these 30MW equal to approximately the total energy consumed by some 30,000 average households, or better yet, 35 medium-sized enterprises.

The fuel source will be the bagasse, through the system allows for other types of biomass sourced for energy production such as: acacia, eucalyptus and leucaena, asides natural gas.

All produced energy will supply part of the demand for the Ingenio Cristóbal Colón, during harvest season, and the rest will be exported and fed into the National Interconnected Electric System (SENI). During the rest of the year, the energy will be fed directly into the SENI.

Also, SPBE was designed to meet the highest national and international standards, like for example, the environmental regulations for health and safety by the World Bank and the IFC, asides being in the final process phase for certification attainment as a project developed within the Clean Development Mechanisms Framework (CDM), which will allow the facility to issue Certified Emission Reduction units (CER)

SPBE is the first project which the national banking system finances under Law 57-07 on Incentives to the Development of Renewable Energy and Special Regimes.
