Colombia to Decarbonise 290 Mega Watt Coal Plant to Solar-Plus-Storage
By Cameron Murray
The Colombian ministry of mining and energy has unveiled that a 290MW coal plant will decarbonise its activity and replace coal production with solar PV generation and energy storage.
Located in the northern part of Colombia – in La Guajira – the Termoguajira plant is the first one to unilaterally transition towards renewable production, according to the Colombian ministry. The plant uses primarily coal with natural gas used as a backup support.
