Review of the Amaila Falls Hydropower Project in Guyana – Final Report
No doubt that Guyana needs Hydropower in order to sever our 100% dependency on non-renewal energy. Suriname, or neighbour to the east took this massive step several years ago. Why we cannot? What is preventing Guyana? As a country we need to unite for the betterment of our future and not let ‘politricks’ get in the way of our future.
Suriname has the lowest reliance upon fossil fuels for the generation of electricity. The most significant alternative source of energy is hydro-electricity, which is currently supplying 95% of the country’s electricity generation requirements. 26% of the total energy supply is generated through the hydropower system at Lake Brokopondo.
The following report says it all and we see no need to further comment, you just need to read it for yourself.
