Latin America Energy Summit - Agenda to cover renewable energy projects, electricity market opportunities, power generation and transmission

The evolution of the electric power sector in South America 


The electric power sector in South America has experienced dramatic changes in recent years. The fall in the price of fossil fuels, the consolidation of non-conventional renewable energies as competitive alternatives, the success of governments to reduce the price of electric energy through auctions, the irruption of aggressive players, the slowdown of economic activity in Latin America, the role of investment funds in the sector and the effects of climate change make up a varied and complex cocktail that is changing the economies of the electricity business and related strategies from the different energy players. 

 

This will be the backdrop to the ongoing discussion and debates taking place at the 7th Latin America Energy Summit 2024 that will be held in person in Santiago, Chile on April 17-18, 2023

Industry leaders will address issues such as:
