Salamanca, Spain, December 12, 2017. For the years 2020 and 2021, it is expected that a large part of the projects tendered in recent years will be connected to the grid, generating energy at highly competitive prices. Latin America will become one of the leading regions in renewable generation worldwide.

With the objective of analyzing the current situation of the energy sector in Latin America, as well as designing solid strategies for the future of the regional energy matrix, more than 1000 senior executives will meet in 3 encounters in the main markets at the regional level (Southern Cone, Andean Region and Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean) throughout 2018.

In the last five years, the transformation of the energy industry in Latin America has been full. Massification of the use of natural gas in electricity generation, introduction of renewable energies in the vast majority of national matrices, unanimous acceptance of the Paris agreement, competitive bidding. No doubt Latin America “has stepped on the accelerator” and there is no going back.El ambiente de transición política en los principales países de la región (México, Colombia, Chile, Honduras, Costa Rica,…) contribuirá sin duda a incrementar los esfuerzos por incluir la transformación de la matriz energética regional en las prioridades de las nuevas administraciones a nivel regional.

Auctions, battery development, expansion in the area of distributed generation, sources of financing, electric vehicles, technological innovation, … all these elements and many more will be the basis of a tour that will have more than 250 local and international speakers, who will debate during intense days the future of the regional energy sector.

The political transition environment in the main countries of the region (Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Honduras, Costa Rica…) will undoubtedly contribute to increase efforts to include the transformation of the regional energy matrix into the priorities of the new administrations to regional level.
The situation of high competitiveness and innovation that surrounds the sector will not go unnoticed during the days of Energyear. Thus, the organization will dedicate a prominent space for the winners of the auctions at regional level as well as for the main manufacturers of components at an international level with the aim of predicting the future trends of the sector.
