Honduras - Issues and options in the energy sector (Inglês)

The two critical areas of the Honduran energy sector which require the most improvement and support are petroleum product procurement and social forestry projects. With that in mind, Honduras' energy strategy should then focus on: (i) optimizing the contribution of forest resources to the economy; (ii) purchasing petroleum products at the least-cost supply option; (iii) optimizing the use of electricity available from the El Cajon hydro project; and (iv) improving the overall coordination of the energy sector. The basic objective of Honduras' strategy in petroleum should be to obtain petroleum supplies at least cost and to improve the collection of oil revenues from the sales of petroleum products. Regarding forestry, this sector may well become the backbone of the Honduran economy, although it has not yet received the attention necessary to achieve its true potential. The Government of Honduras (GOH) needs to develop an integrated forestry program and consider the expansion of the ongoing social forestry management projects. Further to this, El Cajon's hydro generating plant's excess capacity may offer the only significant contribution in the short term through international electricity sales to minimizing the National Electric Power Company's (ENEE) financial problems.
