The Government of El Salvador has an energy policy for the 2010-2024 period. Among its strategic lines, we can find the diversification of the energy matrix, the promotion of renewable energy sources, innovation and technological development and regional energy integration through the Central American interconnection line (SIEPAC).


The National Energy Council (CNE for its acronym in Spanish), is the governing body of the national energy policy. It has developed a future expansion plan for power generation, which forecasts a 2.5% average annual growth for the demand corresponding to the 2016-2026 period.
