How often is the energy generated by dams in poor nations sold for use outside their borders?

    Not very often, generally (and this is a large generalization), poorer countries tend to be agriculture or natural resource based economies, and lack proper infrastructure for energy production and consumption, especially in large enough quantities to make them viable exporters.In addition, if a energy exporting project is being taken out, it is likely that it is being done by a welthier nation on a poorer nations soil, meaning the poorer nation doesn’t really reap the benefits of the energy exports, the wealthier nation financing the operation does.

    Brazil has become a powerful world economy because it has utilized its natural advantages (large work force and sugar cane ethanol) to become a leader in sustainable developement and energy exports.
