Strategic Communications & Knowledge Sharing Support for Guyana's Oil & Gas Sector
The objective of the Technical Cooperation (TC) is to support on-going efforts of the new Department of Energy towards building strategic communications capacity to properly implement public relations and public education strategies to highlight the expected benefits from the development of the Oil & Gas Sector in Guyana. In addition, it will provide technical support to the Government of Guyana (Bureau of Statistics) to monitor and measure O&G production.

La energía renovable es más barata y menos contaminante, ¿pueden los gobiernos acelerar la transición?
Imagina tu día en el futuro. Te levantas para preparar tu desayuno en una cocina de inducción eléctrica, que, al igual que todos los electrodomésticos de tu casa, funciona con electricidad procedente de los paneles solares que tienes en tu tejado. Luego, vas a trabajar en tu bicicleta eléctrica o en el tranvía que funciona gracias a la energía de un parque eólico situado en las afueras de la ciudad. Un día más sin huella de carbono. Lo mejor de todo: el precio. La energía renovable es tan barata que no te cobran por la cantidad que consumes. En su lugar, pagas una pequeña cuota mensual que no se ve afectada por los precios internacionales del petróleo o las guerras. Tendrás la luz siempre encendida, ¡aunque pase un huracán!

High and Dry: Stranded Natural Gas Reserves and Fiscal Revenues in Latin America and the Caribbean
The global low-carbon energy transition driven by technological change and government plans to comply with the Paris Agreement makes future gas demand, prices, and associated public revenues uncertain. We assess the prospects for natural gas production and public revenues from royalties and taxation of gas production in Latin American and the Caribbean under different levels of climate policy. We derive demand from a global energy model, and supply from a global natural gas field model and a global oil field model for associated gas. We find that natural gas production and associated public revenue are strongly impacted by decarbonization efforts. The more stringent climate policy is, the lower the production of natural gas. Exporting natural gas from Latin America and the Caribbean does not help the rest of the world reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In scenarios consistent with limiting global warming well-below 2C, incumbent producers and natural gas associated with oil dominate production, drastically limiting opportunities for new gas production in the region and increasing the amount of gas left in the ground. Reduced demand for gas produced from Latin America and the Caribbean is mainly driven by falling demand in the region itself, as energy demand in buildings, industry, and transportation shift towards electricity produced from zero-carbon sources. Cumulative public revenues from natural gas extraction by 2035 range between 42 and 200 billion USD. The lower end of the range reflects scenarios consistent with below 2C warming. In this case, up to 50% of proven, probable, and possible (3P) reserves in the region (excluding Venezuela) remain unburnable the paper provides estimates by country. Our findings confirm that governments cannot rely on revenues from gas extraction if the objectives of the Paris Agreement are to be met. Instead, they need to diversify their fiscal and export strategy away from dependence on gas production. More generally, climate objectives, energy policies and fiscal strategies need to be consistent. We find that natural gas production in Latin America and the Caribbean and associated public revenue are strongly impacted by decarbonization efforts. The more stringent climate policy is, the lower the production of natural gas exporting natural gas does not help the rest of the world reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When global climate policy is stringent, incumbent producers and natural gas associated with oil dominate production, drastically limiting opportunities for new gas production in the region. Cumulative fiscal revenues from natural gas extraction in the region range between 42 and 200 billion USD by 2035. The lower end of the range reflects global climate policy consistent with 1.5C warming. In this case, up to 70% of regional reserves remain unburnable (the paper provides estimates by country). Our findings confirm that governments need to diversify their fiscal and export revenue strategy away from dependency on gas production. Instead, the focus of energy investment should be on the development of wind and solar, and the electrification of energy uses in other sectors, particularly transport, buildings, and industry.

Bucking the trend: Why institutions matter in Guyana’s hydrocarbon sector
Many countries have used natural resources extraction to realize energy independence, as well as strong economic and social outcomes. However, for every success story there are sobering lessons for new producers, such as Guyana. Lessons premised on the principles of proactive and coherent petroleum sector governance, inclusive policy formulation, and social accountability. In 2015, a

Electrokit: Power Utility Toolkit–Quality of Technical Service
The Electrokit is an initiative created by the IDB to strengthen transformation and continuous improvement of electric utilities in the LAC region. The Electrokit is organized in 16 activities that are common to most electricity utilities. This publication presents the indicators and best practices related to Quality of Technical Service. The aim of the toolkit is to provide power utilities, policy and decision-makers access to best practices, current trends, and expertise to: (i) identify challenges, develop a strategy and action plan for addressing them; and (ii) support utilities to be more sustainable, efficient, improve customer experience and accelerate innovation to stay ahead of the rapidly sector transformation.
