The outgoing CEO of TACV Cabo Verde Airlines, António Neves, said on his Facebook page that the company had posted losses of 65,000,000 escudos in 2010 – results that, according to him, may be considered to be positive, in comparison to the losses of 814 million and 241 million escudos registered in 2008 and 2009, respectively (A Semana).
Cape Verde’s stated objective is to have 50% of all energy consumed in 2020 produced from renewable sources. In order to help the country achieve this goal, Luxembourg has provided 55 million escudos financing to help definitively implement projects in the sector. In order to guarantee the sustainability of the sector, Luxembourg is also setting up a professional school aimed specifically at the area of renewable energies (A Semana).
