The government also hopes to construct five thermal plants, three of them fired by coal.
The government will undertake feasibility studies to analyze the construction of micro dams in the Caribbean region, which is not currently served by the Spanish energy company Unión Fenosa.
The manufacturing sector as a whole saw a decline in FDI due to a sharp drop in flows to Central America and the Caribbean.
The stoppage of the Barro Blanco Hydroelectric Project has raised concerns about the legal certainty of investments made within the framework of the country's development plans.
Investment made by Guatemalan companies in Nicaragua almost tripled between 2014 and 2015, with money mainly going into energy, sugar, palm oil and tourism.
