Consorcio Energético Punta Cana-Macao hosts meeting with the Council's Dominican Republic Member Committee

Posted on 18 January 2019

The meeting between the World Energy Council’s London Secretariat and the Dominican Republic Member Committee was hosted by the utility company Consorcio Energético Punta Cana  – Macao (CEPM) on the 7th of January.  The main points of discussion were strategic alignments between the Member Committee and the Council, as well as reviewing areas in which the Member Committee could further engage.

The Dominican Republic Member Committee is presently working on developing its activities in order to provide a platform for dialogue and strategic thinking for the sector. This is a crucial development, as actors of the energy system tend to be “stuck in their day to day” and lack the capacity to take a step back and look at what is going on in other countries and other regions, and develop strategies. The Member Committee, via the Insights tool and the international network of the Council, hopes to be able to provide this platform for strategy and vision development.

In attendance were:

  • Ruddy Ramirez, Chair of the Member Committee and CFO of Empresa de Transmisión Eléctrica Dominicana
  • George Reinoso, Secretary of the Member Committee and Energy Consultant
  • Nestor Contín, Member Committee board member and CEO of GM Gestión Legal
  • Arturo Del Villar, Member Committee board member and Dean of Engineering, Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (Intec)
  • Pauline Blanc, Energy Transition Insights Manager, World Energy Council’s London Secretariat
