Dominican Republic and Inter-American Development Bank sign agreement

The Dominican Republic's National Energy Commission has signed a technical cooperation agreement with the Inter-American Development Bank.

The agreement, which will see a number of bioenergy studies, including technical studies on bioenergy and also on the sustainability of agricultural projects, will be undertaken at a cost of $937,500 (€708,275).

National Energy Commission president Enrique Ramirez has suggested that the agency will start by establishing the feasibility of several bioenergy projects, identifying companies involved in the agricultural market and focussing initially on those working with sugar cane, fruits and vegetables.
