SolarPower Europe has launched the Latin America Solar investment opportunities report. This regional report, which covers four solar markets, was written by experts from Powertis, Finergreen, ABO Wind, BayWa r.e. and QOS Energy, and was also supported by national solar associations from Brazil (ABSOLAR), Chile (ACESOL), Colombia (SER Colombia) and Mexico (ASOLMEX). This report provides a general overview of the four countries’ business environment, major macroeconomic, demographic and socio-political trends. Moreover, it highlights the countries’ energy context and relevant stakeholders, as well as the regulatory frameworks for investments in the solar sector. The report reveals the huge potential for the development of solar PV in the region, regardless of the different levels of political support. For each country, a list of recommendations was developed to further unlock this solar potential and improve the markets’ attractiveness in the eyes of international investors.
The report was produced by SolarPower Europe’s Emerging Markets Workstream. The Emerging Markets Workstream launched in 2018 to identify opportunities for business and cooperation and thereby contribute to the energy transition in emerging markets outside Europe. Since then, the Workstream has become an active working group with more than 120 experts from over 60 companies, working on a suite of reports presenting solar investment opportunities in new and emerging markets around the world.
The Latin American report is the eighth in a series of SolarPower Europe market reports. Previous reports focus on India, Tunisia, Mozambique, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Myanmar and Kazakhstan. All reports can be downloaded from here free of charge. If you want to be part of these activities and discover new solar business opportunities, join SolarPower Europe’s Emerging Markets Workstream.
