The Latin American Association of Mining and Energy (ALAME), held the Colombian Renewable Energies Conference on June 15 and 16 in Cartagena.

 

Among the academic agenda was the presence of the Researcher Gonzalo Bravo, representing the Bariloche Foundation, who analyzed the report on the GSR.

 

The report  presents the progress and trends towards the end of 2016, as well as the trends observed at the beginning of 2017, wherever possible. This annual report was first published in 2005 and presents the most complete and up-to-date picture on the state of recent developments and trends in the global renewable energy, industry, investment and policy development markets. Because of its design, it does not provide an analysis or forecast but rather seeks to make key information available to stakeholders in this sector. The data provided is based on an international network of more than 800 collaborators, researchers and authors.

 

Gonzalo Bravo gave a regional imprint to this Report, regarding the need to accelerate the development of each of the countries in Latin America and of course the global development of the Region, discussing what role renewable energy can play in this development .
