Energy Sector: Outlook for the Region

If the quarantine and mobility restriction measures are extended by two months, it is forecast that by the end of the year the annualized demand for electricity generation, transmission and distribution in Central America will have fallen by 4%.

Monday, March 30, 2020

The "Information System for the Impact Analysis of Covid-19 on Business", prepared by the Trade Intelligence Unit of CentralAmericaData, measures the degree of impact that the crisis will have on companies according to their sector or economic activity, considering various scenarios for the coming months.

It is projected that by 2020 the income of companies involved in generating, transmitting and distributing electricity in the region could fall by up to 6%, if the measures of isolation of people and restriction of mobility decreed by the governments in Central American countries are extended for three months.

According to the interactive report, it is expected that in this context of health alert, the reduction in demand for electricity service will be largely explained by the downward trend in purchases by hotels and other integrated services.

The services provided to companies that manufacture plastic products are another activity that will affect the business of generation, transmission and distribution of electricity
