Panel: Investment opportunities in the energy transition and energy storage
Global emissions goals to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 presents challenges and opportunities to infrastructure developers and investors in Latin America. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that emerging countries, including much of Latin America, will need USD 1trn per year between now and 2050 to finance their energy transition. According to the IEA, achieving that goal will require a prominent role for the private sector. This panel will discuss:
- How can governments make investment in the region’s energy transition more appealing to foreign investors?
- China invested USD 58bn in Latin America’s energy sector between 2000 and 2020, over 15% towards renewables. What will China’s role in investing in Latin America’s energy transition be?
- How will volatility in the region affect the cost of capital and renewable energy projects’ achieving investment and development?
- Should governments do more to support the energy transition such as offering subsidies or blocking private investment in fossil fuels?
