Panama needs much more alternative energy

Thursday, May 28, 2015

The exhaustion of the potential of hydroelectricity and social resistance to its use, is bringing to the forefront alternative energy as a solution to meeting Panama’s electricity demand which is growing at 5 percent a year.

Energy imports from Central America and Colombia, through the interconnection network and the possibility of building more thermal power plants and renewable options are choices the country has to meet future electricity demand.
