Honduras: Renewable Energy is not Progressing

Entrepreneurs are complaining that ENEE favors companies producing electricity with imported raw materials.

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Energy developers are complaining that the National Electricity Company (ENEE) is negotiating contracts with companies that work with imported raw materials, while a number of renewable energy projects are stalled due to lack of resolution.

The former president of the Honduran Association of Small Producers of Renewable Energies (AHPPER), Jack Arévalo told Elheraldo.hn: "We see that ENEE is trying to negotiate with those that generate energy through imported raw materials. However, we have been awaiting a response to a request made to the management of the state entity since October 16, 2006. We are still waiting for an offer as generators of energy through renewable sources."
