Promising Energy Initiatives in Guatemala

Guatemala is taking significant steps toward a brighter energy future. The National Electrification Plan 2024-2027, the first of its kind in three decades, aims to achieve universal electrification and secure funding for rural projects.

Additionally, the inauguration of two regional offices for the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) in Quetzaltenango and Puerto Barrios will enhance supervision and monitoring of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbon commercialization (gasoline, diesel, and liquefied petroleum gas).

In the short term, careful operational planning in the electricity sector ensures a stable power supply despite challenges like reduced water flow due to La Niña alerts and potential rain delays. Furthermore, an electric transmission project connecting the Modesto Méndez substation promises improved service in Petén.

Lastly, efforts are underway to responsibly conclude operations in the Laguna del Tigre reserve, aligning with protected area regulations and environmental.
