Why we partnered together
Energas and AES shared a commitment to transitioning the Dominican Republic away from conventional generation and toward a greener energy mix through natural gas. Energas is responsible for a major share of electricity generation in the country and was ready to take the next step in its clean energy journey to empower the country’s greener energy transformation. Through AES Dominicana, we introduced natural gas into the country over 20 years ago, saving our customers over half a billion dollars and avoiding four million tons of CO2 emissions every year.
However, the Eastern region of the country where Energas’ facility is located lacked existing natural gas networks or pipelines to transport natural gas. The Dominican Republic needed a holistic infrastructure solution to strategically shift from conventional generation to natural gas.
Combining our respective relationships, expertise, and innovative strategies, we partnered through a new joint venture, EnaDom, to transform the country into a cleaner, more reliable energy matrix. Together, we could develop the infrastructure and delivery solutions needed to transition the country from oil to natural gas.
