Latin America Renews its Energy Matrix

The crisis is not stopping energy projects. Nicaragua is among the countries that are growing the most in wind energy generation capacity.

Monday, April 27, 2009

The region is trying to regain lost ground, and there are dozens of power generation projects, especially using renewable sources.

The article in Americaeconomia.com pointed to, for example, the current 769 MW of wind energy generation. "In 2009, there should be more than 1,200 MW being added and 1,000 MW in 2010. Considering that investments in the wind industry are around $2 million per MW built, the investment totals some $2.4 billion in this biennium."

According to the article - along with Uruguay, Nicaragua is the country that is advancing the most in the field of wind energy, going from zero to "several dozen MW" of installed capacity. Along with Costa Rica, Nicaragua is also highlighting the trend of taking advantage of small hydroelectric power plants (SHP).
