CEPM presented to the President of Guyana as a model of innovation in the energy sector

Mohamed Irfaan Ali, president of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, visited CEPM’s plant in Bávaro, as part of his official agenda in the Dominican Republic.

La Altagracia. – The Punta Cana-Macao Energy Consortium (CEPM) received in its facilities the visit of the president of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, Mohamed Irfaan Ali, to present the innovative energy solutions and state-of-the-art technology that have guaranteed the access of the eastern part of the country to state-of-the-art, reliable and sustainable energy.

Accompanied by its CEO, Roberto Herrera, and its general manager, Oscar San Martín, among other company executives, the presidential delegation visited the CEPM plant located in Bávaro, as part of its official agenda in the Dominican Republic, with the vision of taking note of the good practices of this company that have positioned it at the forefront of the energy sector.

During the visit, the indicators that place this company at the top in terms of efficiency and quality in the region were highlighted, as has been recognized by the Regional Energy Integration Commission (CIER). This is the case of the total average duration of interruptions in hours per year (SAIDI), which reached only 1.73 hours in 2022, compared to the 520 hours allowed by the Superintendency of Electricity. The number of interruptions (SAIFI) was 2.98 in 2022, compared to the 260 allowed under current regulations.

Energy losses also remained low, with a percentage of 4.65% in 2022; and a collectability of 100.9%, reaffirming its ability to effectively manage and control its network. These data confirm CEPM as a leader in the regional energy sector, driving innovation and quality for the benefit of the community and the environment.

One of the main stops during the visit was CEPM’s Intelligent Monitoring Center, from where the entire service structure is inspected to guarantee the quality and efficiency of its operations in real time, 24 hours a day. This platform is based on cutting-edge technology, unique in the country, and created by Dominican talent that has already become a successful model in several Latin American countries.

The Guyanese president showed his interest in the country’s progress in electric mobility and the development that InterEnergy Group, CEPM’s parent company, has promoted through the Evergo brand, with which the company is positioned as a leader in the country and the region in the installation of the largest and most sophisticated network of charging stations for electric vehicles.

Another point of the visit was the presentation of CEPM’s generation projects, including its ambitious commitment to renewable energies, as well as the impact of electricity supply on the socioeconomic and environmental development of its concession area, and the promotion of electric mobility in this important tourist area.

In this regard, executives highlighted the progress of its CEPM Zero program, aimed at decarbonizing its operations by 2030 through solar, wind, pumped hydro and green hydrogen. With this step, this company would become one of the world’s first zero-emission and 100% renewable electric companies, making the Dominican Republic a benchmark tourist destination in terms of sustainability at a global level.
