Where: Argentina

What: Building PPP Expertise

We organized in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and Argentina’s Ministry of Energy a high-level conference on strengthening public-private partnerships (PPP) to scale-up renewable energy project in the region from April 10-11, 2014.

Discussions focused sharing on lessons learned and current best practices that promote the scaling up of successful PPP projects in the region by presenting concrete case studies. We presented our projects in Galapagos, Argentina, and Uruguay, sharing proven business models and concrete development and implementation strategies. Through the discussions, participants were able to identify the main drivers and obstacles to replicating renewable energy PPP projects in the Latin America.

The workshop brought together 50 participants from countries in the region, including national and international project developers and experts, government and power sector delegates, financing institutions and electrification development community representatives.

This high-level workshop is part of our PPP conference program which empowers decision-makers through regional conferences worldwide that help define best strategies and practices for the successful implementation of public-private partnerships in the sustainable electricity sector.

“For us, it is highly satisfactory to have this workshop here. It addresses the key issues of the sector and improves the learning curve by sharing the best practices from projects realized in Latin America”

Daniel Cámeron, Secretary of Energy of Argentina
