ONLINE EVENT: Offshore Wind Energy in LAC – Gauging Speed and Direction
Offshore wind holds abundant potential in many areas of Latin America, and several countries in the region are exploring this largely untapped energy source. Brazil and Colombia have already launched government roadmaps to regulate and attract investment, and Costa Rica is carrying out studies to identify the technical and environmental viability of offshore windfarms. Meanwhile, companies in multiple countries are announcing ambitious investments to develop such projects. This event will explore the potential of offshore wind in the region, the regulatory, technical, and financial conditions needed to capitalize on it, and the government and private sector plans that are already starting to do so. For more information and a list of speakers, see the agenda below.
We invite participants to submit questions through the Q&A function in Zoom or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
