Impact Energy in El Salvador
Impact Energy has the honor of joining Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GWHCC) on a Diplomatic and Trade Mission to El Salvador later this week. The trade mission's goal is to cultivate a Sister City relationship and promote tourism to the District.
El Salvador has been active in the development of renewable energy and promotion of energy efficiency. Several solar plants have already been developed in the country and foreign investment from organizations such as the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will only increase the number of renewable energy projects.
The government of El Salvador released details of a new 28 MW tender. The tender will promote solar and biomass energy and will accept bids of up to 2 MW. The country is expecting the tender to bring 20 MW in solar energy projects and 8 MW in biogas. The winners of the tender will be contracted for a period of 15 months and are expected to provide supply by the end of the first year.
Impact Energy is excited to travel to El Salvador to get a first hand look at the renewable energy plants, learn about the country's energy efficiency projects, and to build relationships with the government and the local businesses.
We look forward to sharing the results of the trip!
