Sustainable Energy Access Fund for Poverty Reduction in Central America (FOCAEP by its acronym in Spanish) was created due to the need to propose new alternatives to reduce poverty, promoting economic development in rural, urban and peri-urban areas of Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala through the development of sustainable energy solutions (improved wood stoves and small hydroelectric power plants, among other kinds of low-power sustainable energy). These initiatives have acted as a catalyst to create clean and sustainable energy markets. They use a multi-actor approach, which helps encourage an active participation from the private sector; what’s more, they stimulate productive uses of energy.
