Transition, Transition, Transition: Shaping the energy market in Latin America

Energy Transition seems to be the main topic on everyone’s mind - efficiency and decarbonization of existing assets is the name of the game. This session will discuss relevant assets, realistic timelines for delivery, fair risk assessment, and best practices in leveraging being an early entrant into the space. 

  • What is Latin America’s role in the fabric of global energy transition? Or where does Latin America sit…

  • Will national and regional  utilities generally be a help or a hindrance to deploying low carbon power?

  • Can DFIs get behind and support financing for decarbonization? 

  • How do supply chain issues in regards to energy transition minerals inform decisions for new projects?
