As a member of CARIFORUM, the Dominican Republic (DR) is also a beneficiary of TAPSEC. Currently, the generation of electricity in the Dominican Republic is mainly based on fossil fuels, contributing 1/3 to the inventory of Greenhouse Gases. In 2019, 88.13% of electric power was based on fossil fuels and only 11.87% was generated by renewable energy, of which only 5.17% (6.27% with biomass) were non-conventional renewable energy.

In its climate targets, the Dominican Republic has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by one-third by 2030 compared with existing levels in 2010.The Dominican Republic passed legislation on renewable energy in 2007 as part of its endeavors to achieve these targets.
