Abstract :

This paper shows the potential of biomass to contribute a change in Cuba's energy matrix, based on results achieved by Sancti Sp?­ritus University "Jos?© Mart?­ P?©rez", UNISS, identifying potential for power generation using renewable energy sources in the province, in order to change the current energy structure for a matrix based largely on renewable sources to increase quality and stability of energy supply, reduce oil imports and environmental impacts of energy sector, financial performance and greater energy sovereignty. A work exposed from an energy diagnosis in 2014 contributed implementation of renewable energy potentials of available biomass to the energy matrix of Sancti Sp?­ritus province, which have been identified by researches, conducted to increase cogeneration in sugar industry, biogas production by biodigesti?³n of different waste and biomass torrefaction of Marab?º; also considering other projects promoted by the Cuban government. As results, the implementation of biomass as energy resource through potential identified by UNISS and projects promoted by the Cuban government in the consumption of 2014, would have helped to transform the renewable contribution from 6% to 55% in the matrix and generate more than 100% of the power consumption, biomass would provide around 98% of renewable, showing its importance for the Cuban energy matrix transformation; by a growth of 4% annual of energy consumption, could be covered from renewable more than 50% of whole demand and 90% of electricity consumption until 2020 and Sancti Sp?­ritus could achieve energy indicators comparable with developed countries.
