Nicaragua to produce 50% of energy from renewables by the end of 2013

There you have, I understand, a country that will damage less its natural resources, that will be less reliant on foreign imports and that will be in advantage as the old energy sources (fossil, nuclear) are becoming obsolete.

Right now it is already producing almost that figure because of the seasonal conditions (strong winds) but the figure of 50% will become stable, according to the government by the end of 2013.

Since the return of the Sandinista Front to the government in 2007, the problem of energy has been solved, first with a short term solution: thermal power (oil) but then with a growing reliance on renewables. It is also working on reduction of energy consumption by means of education.
