Honduras 2008-2030: Energy perspectives and possible scenarios


Context (excerpt)

Honduras shows high dependency on imported fuels which rise in price daily in the market, and at the same time, there is scant use, in a sustainable and efficient manner, of the available energy resources in the country. This situation works against Sustainable Development due to the high costs implied by import of petroleum products. According to the data of the Action Plan of the National Sustainable Energy Policy, June 2005, around 43% of the final energy consumption in Honduras is made up of fuels derived from petroleum or a totally imported origin.  CEPAL data for 2007 show that the demand for internal use of petroleum fuels marches import levels, with little remaining for other uses such as LPG with residue for export.
