Wind Energy

It’s the energy that uses wind power to generate electricity. In Central America, there is a high potential for wind energy generation, mainly in Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama; however, the interest to use this resource is rapidly expanding in the region. The EEP has supported various initiatives to assess the wind potential of specific sites in Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Panama, conducting technical and feasibility studies to identify potential areas for development of small and large scale. The Partnership also supported the installation of small wind systems for water pumping in extremely dry areas where water resources are very scarce, to benefit remote rural communities and farms, serving as a measure for climate change adaptation; and also for industrial use, e.g. watering crops and in the fishery sector for aeration of tilapia.
