Renewable energy is becoming the technology of the future, and consequently, so, the use of nonrenewable sources is depleting. Due to the nation’s location in Sub-Saharan Africa, a lack of resources is an incredibly prevalent obstacle in building sustainable infrastructure. Equatorial Guinea managed to overcome that obstacle by introducing a renewable energy source: a hydraulic system.
The delegation of Equatorial Guinea will be hosting the 5th Summit of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum, in hopes of gaining more cooperation amongst gas producing nations. 2019 has been named Equatorial Guinea Year of Energy, in which the summit will be its last event. Equatorial Guinea recognizes the potential of renewable energy and looks forward to discovering affordable ways of implementing infrastructure in LDCs and countries that hold a lesser advantage due to their location or economy.
In the process of becoming a more sustainable planet, Equatorial Guinea urges the nations to consider the countries that depend on gas, oil, and other energy sources as their main exports as well as their main source of economy. In order to increase the renewable sources in nations, maintaining a successful infrastructure must be the first step.
