Installed electric generating capacity in the Caribbean exceeds 17 gigawatts (GW). In general, the region needs additional capacity. Several countries (including the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Cuba) experience power outages on a regular basis. Electricity demand in the region is expected to grow substantially in the coming decade. Cuba had significant amounts of power generated from non-hydro renewable (geothermal, solar, wind, wood and waste) electric sources in 2001. Cuba produced approximately 0.8 billion kWh of renewable power.

In 2002, Cuban oil production averaged 49,300 bbl/d while oil consumption averaged 157,000 bbl/d. Most domestic crude oil production consists of a heavy, sulfur-laden oil, which is converted into usable fuel. Refineries process imported crude oil, mainly from Venezuela and Mexico.
