Cape Verde is strongly committed to the challenge of the Energy Transition in a safe, inclusive and sustainable way in line with international commitments, namely the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 7).


Cape Verde's energy transition strategy is part of the National Program for Energy Sustainability (NPES) which embodies the guidelines defined in the Strategic Plan for Sustainable Development (SPSD) in terms of energy.


The focus of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Energy is essentially aimed at promoting renewable energies and energy efficiency, in order to reduce dependence on imported fossil fuels and, consequently, reduce energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. stove.
