Time: 3PM London/11AM New York
The Latin American renewable energy industry has an enormous potential for development and growth. The region is geographically perfect to develop all kind of renewable energy sources and is committed to make it happen. However, first it needs to overcome some obstacles and bring more investments into the region.
Our first webinar ahead of the annual CLER forum - The LatAm Renewable Energy Forum will give you a glimpse of what will be discussed in-depth during the conference in Buenos Aires next April. Some of the questions we will be looking to discuss with the esteemed panel of speakers include:
• How LatAm can become the leading region for renewables in the world? Is this achievable?
• How is Argentina catching up in incorporating RE in its electricity mix compared to LatAm and the rest of the world?
• What investments in upgrading the grid are required and how will we go ahead and tackle them?
• Project financing: How can we rebuild confidence and attract new funding partners to Latin America, and specifically to Argentina, given the new global economic scenario?
The LatAm Renewable Energy Forum will take place in Buenos Aires on 26-27 June 2019 and bring together national and international representatives from energy generators, equipment manufacturers, government, investors and key energy users to discuss best strategies and next steps to transform Latin America into the global renewable energy leader.
Join us to get up-to-speed with the current state of affairs, meet our expert panel speakers and pose your questions during the broadcast.
