We participate in a key project for the transition of El Salvador towards the generation of renewable energy and non-reliance on fossil fuels.
The Meangueras del Golfo project, implemented by AES El Salvador, is designed so that the region can stop depending on fossil fuel. From eks Energy we have supplied the project our hybrid solutions that guarantee the highest efficiency with the best performance.
AES El Salvador undertook the Meanguera del Golfo Renewable Energy Project as part of its commitment to move towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy generation. Meanguera del Golfo is a municipality located on the east coast of El Salvador that relied heavily on fossil fuel-based electricity generation, resulting in high greenhouse gas emissions and significant environmental impact. After recognizing the need to diversify its energy sources, reduce its carbon footprint and contribute to the country’s sustainable development goals, AES El Salvador launched a pioneering project in the area.
The primary objectives of the Meanguera del Golfo Renewable Energy Project were as follows:
– To establish a renewable energy generation facility in Meanguera del Golfo.
– To reduce carbon emissions.
– To contribute to the national goal of increasing the share of renewable energy.
– To create local employment opportunities and promote socio-economic development.
The Meanguera del Golfo Renewable Energy Project yielded several significant results and benefits:
– Clean Energy Generation: The power facility now generates clean electricity, displacing a substantial amount of fossil fuel-based generation and reducing CO2 emissions.
– Reduced Carbon Footprint: The project’s clean energy contribution resulted in a significant reduction in carbon emissions, helping El Salvador make progress towards its climate change mitigation targets.
– Socio-Economic Impact: The project created employment opportunities, stimulating local economic growth and supporting livelihoods.
– Energy Security: By diversifying its energy sources, El Salvador improved its energy security, reducing its dependence on imported fossil fuels.
– Community Engagement: AES El Salvador actively engaged with local communities, collaborating on social and development initiatives to enhance the well-being of residents.
