Welcome to the March edition of Energy Panorama
This month we published our latest Policy Brief “Charting a New Path for Latin America’s Electric Utilities after COVID” by our Non-Resident Fellow, Andres Chambouleyron. Chris Sladen, our newest Energy & Sustainability Non-Resident Fellow, contributed the Global Context for the Policy Brief.
Together with our Steering Committee member Sproule and Non-Resident Fellow Marta Jara, we hosted “Latin America’s 2021 Energy Outlook – Resilience and Reset.” The webinar explored key trends and M&A activity, offered insights into key developments this year and how COVID recovery and the energy transition is affecting investment patterns in the region. The presentation and recording are available below.
Our focus on hydrogen policy development was featured as part of our joint event, “Green Hydrogen in Chile,” with the Baker Institute and University of Antofagasta. The public session counted a keynote presentation by Energy & Mines Minister Juan Carlos Jobet and Max Correa, Director of Fuels and New Energy at the Ministry and the principal for implementing Chile’s ambitious strategy.
With our Steering Committee members we hosted further strategic discussions of hydrogen as a building block across the region. We are developing a high-level assessment and landscape exercise that will form the basis for a series of infographics.
Energy Transition Initiative Director, Cecilia Aguillon, shared her insights on green hydrogen in Brazil as part of commentary in the Dialogue’s Energy Advisor. Cecilia also participated in the RENPOWER Caribbean Conference and discussed market design to support new renewable energy projects in the Caribbean.
Our focus on the evolving energy and climate policy debate in Mexico continued and Vice President Jeremy Martin was featured in several articles.
Our monthly virtual meeting with our Non-Resident Fellows focused on next steps for our year-long research project on energy transition and workforce development.
We also formally launched the La Jolla Conference 30th anniversary website and draft program. We look forward to having you join us in May to celebrate our milestone.
