This work analyses the evolution of primary energy supply in Cuba and Spain between 1990 and 2016, using data from the International Energy Agency. The key aspects of each of Cuba’s energy sources are set out, and the fundamental changes in the Spanish energy sector since 1990 are highlighted, within the European Union framework. The chapter goes on to calculate the values of eight crucial energy indicators for the two countries, and their evolution in the period is compared. Finally, the chapter presents each country’s 2030 energy targets and plans.
