President of APREN perplexed by the absence of the energy transition of the electoral campaign – Energy

It could attract more than 25 billion euros to Portugal in the next decade, create more than 180,000 jobs by 2030 and represent 11% of GDP. Even so, the energy transition and the bet on renewable energies are themes that have been sidelined by the electoral campaign for the January 30 legislative ones.

The criticism is made by Pedro Amaral Jorge, president of the Portuguese Renewable Energy Association (APREN), in an interview with Negócios and Antena 1. The official says he is “perplexed” by the parties’ attitude.

“This investment will make gross capital formation in Portugal and will generate increases in GDP, an increase in employment, an increase in tax revenue, an increase in Social Security. So I find it absolutely amazing that this is not a campaign theme and that it is not said that the energy transition is absolutely fundamental. The incorporation of renewables has to be on the agenda from a central point of view and the benefits are public”, emphasizes the official.
