Guatemala may raise renewables tender to 400 MW

Guatemala's Ministry of Energy and Mines and the National Electric Energy Commission are examining the feasibility of increasing the capacity of the tender for renewables-based projects PEG 3 from 250 MW to 400 MW.

The tender was announced last September.

An increase in the capacity is being considered because of delays in the construction of a number of thermoelectric (coal-based) projects that will produce 300 MW once completed.

Minister of Energy and Mines Erick Archila said he expects the renewable energy tender to be held between April and June this year, reports Energias Renovables.

The renewables projects will be awarded 15-year contracts, for a start-date of operations in 2017.
