Institutions & Energy Policy
The energy sector is under the supervision of the Ministry of Public Works and Communication (MOPC), and more particularly the Vice Ministry of Mines and Energy.
ANDE (Administración Nacional De Electricidad) is the national electric utility. It is still vertically integrated.
Although poorly endowed with hydrocarbon resources, Paraguay has large hydroelectric potential (economically exploitable resources estimated at 68 TWh) that is already well developed both on a national level and in collaboration with the Mercosur countries.
Electricity tariffs are not subject to tax. Since 1995 (end of the monopoly) electricity prices have been based on fixed costs. The large share of hydropower results in relatively low power prices compared to other countries in South America.
Total energy consumption stands at 1.1 toe/capita and 1 800 kWh/capita for electricity (2018). Total and final energy consumption have increased at a rapid pace (4.5%/year since 2005 and 10%/year since 2015), reaching 7.3 Mtoe and 6.6 Mtoe, respectively, in 2018.

Issues & Prospects
Exploration activities are being undertaken by CDS Energy, Primo Cano Martin, Pirity Hidrocarburos and President Energy.
In 2014, President Energy (UK) made the first hydrocarbon discovery in the Lapacho well (Paraguayan Chaco). Total resources are estimated at around 1 Gboe and the first phase of production could start in the coming years.

In the Paraguay energy market report you will find the following tables:
- Economic Indicators: Annual historical data including population, GDP growth, imports and exports, inflation rate, energy security and efficiency indicators, CO2 emissions.
- Supply Indicators: Historical data including oil and gas reserves, electric and refining capacity, energy production, power production and external trade. All are detailed by energy source
- Demand Indicators: Historical data including consumption per inhabitant, consumption trends, total consumption by energy source, final consumption by energy source and sector, and electricity consumption by sector.
- Energy Balances: Single table displaying the overall energy industry balance per annum, also graphically displayed by energy sub-segment.
The Paraguay energy market data since 1990 and up to 2018 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Paraguay country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.
Key Data included in the excelsheet:
- Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
- Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
- Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
- Energy Balance: total and per energy.
- Paraguay Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Paraguay energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
The Paraguay country report is complemented with a national power generation dashboard (excel file) from our Power Plant Tracker Service.
Data included in the excelsheet:
