Regional Workshop on Accelerating Renewable Energy Investments in Latin America

10 – 11 September 2019 |Bogota, Colombia

Organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Mines and Energy Colombia, IRENA's workshop will explore the current renewable energy policy landscape in Latin America, the growing role of public and private financing for renewables, and the available project facilitation tools for countries in the region.

Targeted at participants from energy policy-making institutions, regulatory bodies, and energy stakeholders, including financiers and project developers, the workshop aims to:

  • share experiences, disseminate global best practices and stimulate dialogues on effective and efficient renewable energy policy and regulatory schemes that promote investment in renewables;
  • enhance understanding in the region of the role public financing can play in advancing public policy goals, creating local value chains, and catalysing private finance;
  • examine prevailing challenges for renewable energy entrepreneurs in Latin America;
  • gather feedback from participants on key challenges to renewable energy investment in Latin America.

This workshop is part of the priority area of Project Development and Finance of the IRENA Regional Action Plan for Latin America, presented at the High-Level Meeting on Renewable Energy Deployment in Latin America in January 2019.
