29 June 2017 | Mitigation

Next Thursday, July 6th 2017 at 5:00 pm in Madrid (UTC +1), Factor Energy will participate in the free webinar titled: "Net balance and auctions, efficient mechanisms for the promotion of renewable energy in Latin America ".

This free webinar, organized jointly by the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), the Ibero-American Association of Energy Regulatory Entities (ARIAE) and the Bariloche Foundation (FB), will present the results of a comprehensive analysis of the net balance mechanisms And auctions of electricity from renewable energy sources in Latin America and the Caribbean, carried out in the framework of the Project on Mechanisms and Networks for the Transfer of Technology Related to Climate Change in Latin America and the Caribbean, implemented by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

Set in the need to value the high potential of renewable energy in Latin America in the fight against climate change, the webinar will emphasize the current state and trends in the design of these mechanisms to promote generation from Renewable sources in the region, as well as in design recommendations that allow the deployment of renewable technologies in an efficient manner, while attaining secondary objectives beyond minimizing cost.

The seminar aims to analyze the lessons learned from case studies from countries with long experience in promoting renewable energies, such as Brazil, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Panama and Uruguay.

The panelists, including Hugo Lucas (responsible for  Factor Energy), will make a brief presentation on their respective topics, followed by a moderate debate with representatives of regulatory bodies to delve into challenges and opportunities around the implementation of auctioning mechanisms and net balance for the promotion of clean generation in both large networked and decentralized projects.
