This webinar presents the results of a study about the status and current trends of expanding the use of small hydro plants, wind, solar, geothermal in several Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Venezuela and Central America in a more aggregated manner. The study analysed the countries’ power sector expansion plans up to 2020-30, current regulation and the presence of relevant stakeholders committed to renewable electricity generation.
The work was conducted by the International Energy Initiative, IEI, a Southern-conceived, Southern-led and Southern-located South-North partnership, an NGO with offices in Brazil and India. The webinar will be presented by the leader of the study, Dr. Gilberto M. Jannuzzi, IEI’s Director. The webinar will present the main findings concerning electricity markets, trends in regional energy policies and regulations and the presence of stakeholders in the countries analysed. Which technologies are being preferred? What are the types of regulations being practiced?
