    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – At least 279 small renewable energy projects have been implemented in Central America with the support of international cooperation, which amount to about $ 25.8 million.

    The projects range from solar energy, micro and small hydropower, wind, bioenergy, and installing energy efficient stoves, among others.

    These projects were discussed Wednesday at the meeting for ‘Renewable energy and sustainable development in Central America’ said the Alliance for Energy and Environment for Central America (AEA) in a statement.

    Regional authorities, international donors and project leaders attended the meeting, said the AEA, which is part of the Central American Integration System (SICA).

    The Alliance said that these small renewable energy projects have been implemented in the last 10 years funded by Finland, Austria and the European Union (EU), which together contributed seed capital of 19 million euros (25.8 million dollars).

    In implementing these initiatives, they have involved the ministries of Energy and Environment of the region, NGOs, private investors, academic and research institutions and the rural communities who will benefit.

    The AEA noted that micro and small renewable energy projects have benefited more than 38,000 people of rural populations and indigenous groups in Central America.

    The meeting was held at a hotel in San Salvador and attended by the ambassador of Finland to Central America and Mexico, Anne Lammila, and the executive secretary of the National Energy Board of El Salvador, Luis Reyes, among others.
