"If you've been to Havana recently, you know all the work that needs to be done in infrastructure," said Baring's Marc Frishman in a panel on energy in Cuba. Frishman estimates the island needs some $4 billion of investment in energy infrastrucutre and $1 billion for developing renewables. In addition, Cuba is suffering a deficit in supply after oil shipments from Venezuela fell from 90,000 barrels per day to 50,000, according to Medley Global Advisor's Luisa Palacios.
