Abstract: A spate of new power projects, surging foreign investment, and a welcome dose of positive press coverage are helping transform Nicaragua’s go‐getter energy goals from pipe dream to reality. In 2009, Nicaraguan authorities unveiled an ambitious seven‐year plan that called for expanding overall electricity supply by 70%. Furthermore, the Ministerio de Energía y Minas (MEM) boldly predicted that, by 2017, nearly all of the country’s electricity (90%) would come from renewable‐energy sources.
