Hybrids, Ethanol Have Future in Jamaica
DR Raymond Wright has called for increased investment in energy, primarily in electricity generation, oil refining, transportation, storage and distribution and retailing of products, saying Jamaica needs to utilise the most efficient transport fuels and transport systems.
But he pointed out that it would cost US$350 million to US$500 million to upgrade Jamaica's oil refinery for the purpose.
Last year Jamaica, gobbled up 4.5 million barrels of gasoline and Wright declared that l0 per cent of this gasoline could be substituted by ethanol without modifications to the vehicle engines. Jamaica would save more by producing its own ethanol, he said, plans for which are underway, with the help of Brazil.
