Wind Energy in Nicaragua

Wind Energy in Nicaragua. A Visit by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

As you know, three years ago, I launched the Sustainable Energy for All initiative. It has three goals. The first, to provide universal access to electricity to all the people around the world by 2030; second, double the energy efficiency rate; thirdly, double the renewable energy use in global energy mix.

You have already met the number three target: double the renewable energy. [You are] already at 58 per cent. By 2028, you will have achieved 97 per cent of renewable energy [in your mix]. That is an extremely excellent goal.
