Panama will advance a clean-energy push by embracing ethanol in its gasoline and ending the use of heavy fuels and coal for its power plants by 2023, the nation’s energy minister said.

A plan approved in November by Panama’s Cabinet set five goals to transition through 2030 from fossil fuels, energy minister Jorge Rivera told Reuters in an interview.

The plan includes electric mobility, distributed electricity generation and energy efficiency targets. (Reporting by Marianna Parraga; Editing by Sandra Maler)
