Challenge Accepted: Paraguay Promotes Energy Efficiency
03/16/2018 Since 3 years
“When looking at the long list of challenges countries in the region face in relation to economic development, one could think that for a nation like Paraguay energy access is not at the top of the list. After all, when it comes to electricity, Paraguay has an ace up its sleeve: the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam. Shared with Brazil, the 14 Gigawatts (…yes, 14 GW!) power plant produced more energy as of 2016 than any other hydropower plant in the world, surpassing the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River in China, which has the world’s largest installed capacity (22.5 GW).”
