Honduras's state-owned energy firm the National Electric Power Company (ENEE) has said it expects losses of 31.7 per cent next year. Of that percentage, 12.5 per cent will come from technical losses and 19.5 per cent form commercial losses.

Esmerk Latin American News said that the public company will lose over $400m due to a lack of maintenance on its transmission lines.
