This report analyses changes in design between the two auctions in Colombia, as well as their price outcomes and the factors affecting those prices.
Colombia engaged with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to assess the flexibility of the electricity mix proposed in their latest national expansion plan which pointed to VRE penetration exceeding IRENA’s Renewable Energy Roadmaps (REmap) estimates.
Colombia ha colaborado con la Agencia Internacional de Energías Renovables (IRENA) para evaluar la flexibilidad del parque de generación propuesto en los planes nacionales de expansión. El último plan reclama una penetración ambiciosa de energía solar y eólica que excede incluso las estimaciones del programa REmap de IRENA.
The report offers a comprehensive review of the status and trends in the region’s renewable energy development. It highlights Latin America’s wealth of knowledge, draws key lessons, and outlines findings to support the continued expansion of renewables for power generation, transport and other end-uses.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) produces comprehensive renewable energy statistics on a range of topics. This publication presents IRENA’s latest statistics for renewable power generation and capacity, as well as renewable energy balances for all countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region.
This report provides a region-wide pre-feasibility assessment of solar and wind opportunities in Latin America, for both grid connected and off-grid systems. The outcome includes high resolution maps (1 km resolution) indicating suitable areas for solar and wind energy projects on land, taking account of resource intensity, distance to power grids, population density, land...
ID+D para las tecnologías de energías renovables: Cooperación en América Latina y el Caribe revela que existe una gran diversidad de oportunidades para coordinar las actividades y esfuerzos orientados a promover innovación. La co-innovación y la investigación cooperativa son herramientas con gran potencial para salvar las...
RD&D for Renewable Energy Technologies: Cooperation in Latin America and the Caribbean finds wide opportunities to coordinate innovation activities and efforts. Latin America & the Caribbean (LAC) co-invention and cooperative research can help bridge gaps in renewable energy technologies (RET) innovation and diminish the region’s energy challenges.
Hybridising diesel mini-grids with photovoltaic generation can yield significant cost savings. This study compares the costs of diesel-only and hybridised mini-grids at seven sites – three in Africa, two in Asia and three in Latin America – and shows potential cost savings at all seven sites.
Latin America is one of the regions with the largest shares of renewables in the world, largely thanks to the decades-long contribution of bioenergy and hydropower. In addition, some countries in the region are among the most dynamic markets for solar, wind and geothermal.
