Financing Low Carbon Electricity in Latin America
In collaboration with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and UNDESA, a fourth set of financing dialogues was organized in Santiago, Chile on August 22-23, 2011. Twelve countries from the region participated with high-level representatives from their Ministries of Energy, the national Regulatory agency/commission, and the major public and private electric utilities.
The initiative was designed to stimulate discussions and share perspectives on risk associated with power sector investment in the targeted region with a focus on opportunities to enhance countries' capacity to attract advanced power technology financial flows through the development of appropriate policy strategies and action plans
The workshop will consist of interactive panel discussions and working sessions moderated by international power project investors, developers and experts, who will address and work in collaboration with attending high-level government, power sector and investment community representatives from the region
