The latest “home” meetings such as the G20 and COP 26 show us the need for a further acceleration towards the European GREEN DEAL. With this intervention, prof. Molina of the Don Bosco University in San Salvador shows us that these needs are not only European and are not just high-income states per capita but that the ideas of circular economy, renewable energy sources, better efficiency in energy management are the paradigms of a fairer and ever more universal society.

“Local and Regional Electricity Market to the sustainable resources and friendlier with the environment”

Introduces Roberto Ricciu
Chairman Gianluca Gatto


Central America is a region of 7 countries, of which 6 are electrically interconnected, with a solid regulatory structure with an active and growing transactions over time electricity market. This supra-market above each local control area is an attractive mechanism for industries to acquire energy at better prices than those offered in local markets. In addition, at the level of each control area, it allows reducing the environmental footprint since inefficient generators, usually with more polluting technologies, can be displaced with cleaner generation in other countries. The purpose of the lesson is to show the characteristics of the regional energy market, the general regulatory framework on which it is based, the experience of companies accessing energy transactions with better prices and the substitution of inefficient and polluting generation for new technologies with sustainable resources and friendlier with the environment.
