The World Bank is launching América Central Eficiente as a means to stimulate dialogue around energy efficiency in Central America, to catalyze investment, and to support the development of national and regional policies and regulations to spur the adoption of energy efficiency.

While Central American countries have made tremendous progress, they face continued challenges, such as regional dependence on energy sources that are vulnerable to international oil prices and climate change, the fiscal impact of energy subsidies, and an obsolete power infrastructure. The high costs of electricity are also undermining the region’s competitiveness, growth, and sustainability.

Summit Objectives

  • Create an annual platform to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and international best practices among Central American countries and between the public and private sectors
  • Promote opportunities for private sector investment in regional energy efficiency programs and projects
  • Better coordinate energy efficiency efforts between countries and agencies
  • Align public and private sector objectives and provide the appropriate framework to encourage investments in energy efficiency

The World Bank Group is hosting this as a ministerial-level event and we anticipate a substantial contingent of senior government officials from across the region.
