The discussions will be enhanced by the presentation of lessons learned from recent renewable energy projects conducted in Latin America that could be used as templates for the successful development of sustainable renewable energy facilities in today's social, economic and global environment. The objective is to identify the main drivers and obstacles to scaling up those projects as a means to increase economic opportunity through electrification while also addressing key environmental concerns such as climate change. The workshop will consist of interactive panel discussions moderated by national and international project developers and experts, who will address and work in collaboration with attending government, power sector, financing institutions and electrification development community representatives from the region.
