  1. 1. “Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Latin-America Forum” “Vision and Energy Policy 2011-2014” Rome, Italy September 15, 2011 1
  2. 2. Our Mission To establish and promote Panama´s Energy Policy:  Guarantee Energy Security,  Promote the rational and efficient use of energy resources.  Take advantage of the country´s own energy natural resources and make sustainable use of them.  Use energy in a sustainable way; according to the national energy development plan and within the economic, competitive, quality and environmental issues and regulations. 2
  3. 3. Our VisionPanama with an energy system, that promotes the development and use of renewable sources of energy, and oriented towards a competitive market with a social and environmental responsibility. 3
  4. 4. Pillars of the National Energy Secretariat of Panama Make energy services available to 95% of our population by year 2015. Energy security, A diversified energy matrix Promote the use of renewable and cleaner sources of energy, Promote the rational and efficient use of our energy resources. Promote the development of the regional electricity market. 4

  10. 10. WIND ENERGY Law 44 of April, 2011, establishes and dictates the norms and regulations for the construction and operation of wind energy power plants to be developed in Panama. These power plants may be integrate it to the National Interconnected System. Exclusive bidding processes for wind energy. 10
  11. 11. Regional StrategyDevelopment of the Regional Electricity Market, viaprojects such as:• SIEPAC• ICP Fuente: EPR 11
  12. 12. Colombia-Panama Electricity Interconnection 600Km of Electric transmission line, High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Sub stations in Cerro Matoso, Colombia and Panamá 2, Panamá Estimated Investment = $600MM Expected year to come in operation = 2014 12
  13. 13. Colombia-Panama Regional Electricity InterconnectionEnvironmental and Social affairs are being dealt with according to the standards set by The IDB / IFC / CAF there is an agreement for a detailed study of the border area between the 2 countries, In order to determine which right of way should be subject to Environmental Impacts, The right of way has been defined with the consensus of the Embera-Wounaan in order to get the required approvals. 13
  14. 14. Details - ICP Construction of a 614 km Electricity Transmission Line (340-km in Colombia and 274-km in Panamá), Direct Current (HVDC), 450-kV. The initial capacity of the line will be 300-MW in its first phase; expandable to 600-MW in its 2nd phase. 14
  15. 15. Benefits of the Regional Integration The SIEPAC project will contribute to our regional energy security and will be a determining social and economic factor by making electricity costs more accessible due to the economies of scale and higher efficiencies. Contributes to energy efficiency and to the environment, by stimulating a competitive market via the development of Regional Electricity Generation Power Plants. Facilitates the Development of the regional Telecommunications market Stimulates investments in the energy sector, due to the larger market to serve. It will also serve the member countries as a tool of negotiation. The market would be able to negotiate terms as a block and therefore get costs and other benefits. 15
  16. 16. Program for the Rational and Efficient Use of Energy Norms and Legal Framework:  Includes Labeling Energy Consumption of products,  A software for capacity building and energy consumption data management.  Energy Education plan  Energy Diffusion Plan  Creates new Norms for the Construction sector of the economy  Promotes the use of efficient modes of transportation and less consuming car combustion engines 16
  17. 17. International Consultants For the Renewal of Panama´s Electric Market, For the efficient development of Wind Energy in Panama For the implementation of a diversified energy mix The IDB and The Bariloche Foundation support capacity building for technicians who may want to master in electricity, petroleum products, renewable energies, and other subjects related to energy. Development of a new career at the Technological University of Panama, “Efficient Management of Energy Resources" 17
  18. 18. Oil and Gas Reorganization and digitalization of all past history information available from previous studies that date back all the way to 1913. Identification of 9 potential oil blocks, dispersed thru the areas of Darién, the Golf of San Miguel, and Bocas del Toro among other places. Selection of the 2 most promising basins. By the end of 2011 and in 2012 there will be an approach to the international petroleum markets and players to begin the exploration phase in the areas that have been determined to be most promising. 18
