El enfoque de la valla de la calidad: una aplicación a estudios de caso en la Región Andina
A pesar del potencial de las mypes para contribuir a la productividad y al empleo de calidad, muchas de ellas permanecen en un estado intermedio, sin lograr una modernización sustancial. Están atrapadas detrás de una “valla de la calidad” (Sabel & Ghezzi, 2021) que encapsula una serie de requisitos y estándares necesarios para su integración efectiva en cadenas de valor modernas. Revisamos los resultados de una serie de estudios de caso que examinan las vallas de la calidad en varios sectores de mypes en la región andina. Estos resultados muestran que estas vallas existen no solo en sectores de bienes, como la agricultura, sino que también están presentes en los sectores de servicios, que representan la mayoría de las mypes en la región. Además, los casos demuestran que las variables que explicarían esas vallas pueden categorizarse en tres grupos principales: (a) limitaciones en habilidades y conocimientos especializados; (b) desafíos en la aglomeración y articulación necesarias para alcanzar escalas de mercado eficientes; y (c) restricciones financieras que impiden inversiones cruciales. Estos desafíos persisten debido a fallas, tanto de Estado como de mercado, que se manifiestan en una regulación ineficiente, deficiencias educativas y de infraestructura, y una insuficiente difusión de conocimientos y tecnologías. Ante estos hallazgos, sugerimos la aplicación de políticas correctivas que cumplan un papel decisivo en facilitar la modernización de las mypes. Las fallas de Estado requieren de políticas para aumentar la eficiencia del sector financiero y reducir los costos de la formalidad, así como para racionalizar los estándares a las realidades de los mercados de las mypes y mejorar la coordinación y focalización de infraestructura y formación. Las fallas de mercado también implican un rol para el Estado, que consiste en aumentar la transferencia de capacidades y tecnología, y, en particular, promover la articulación y aglomeración, lo cual se puede lograr tanto directamente (por ejemplo, con programas como los CITE de Perú) como indirectamente, subsidiando una parte a través del sector privado. Las intervenciones políticas bien diseñadas y enfocadas pueden cumplir un papel prioritario para superar las vallas de la calidad y contribuir a transformar las mypes para orientarlas hacia la modernización.

State of Charge: Energy Storage in Latin America and the Caribbean
Energy storage can bring many benefits to electricity systems, including enhanced grid reliability, efficiency, and flexibility. It will also be a key enabler of mass decarbonization and climate change mitigation, facilitating the expansion of variable renewable energy sources such as wind and solar while ensuring grid security. However, energy storage deployment in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is still nascent. This publication examines the current and potential future roles for various energy storage technologies in LAC grids. It describes the main energy storage technologies being used internationally and the status of storage technologies in LAC, highlighting emblematic projects. The publication also seeks to identify the most promising applications of each of these technologies in different LAC contexts and provide recommendations on the regulatory and policy changes that would be required to facilitate greater energy storage uptake in the region.

The Socio-economic Determinants of Energy Technology Awareness in Latin America and the Caribbean
The adoption of energy technologies like solar panels, LED bulbs, hybrid and electric vehicles; and energy-related mobile apps will transform an entire energy sector and give energy consumers a more central role inside energy markets. To drive the adoption of these technologies, we must first address technology awareness and examine the determining factors. This paper assesses the awareness of the five technologies aforementioned in sixteen Latin American and Caribbean countries based on information collected at the individual level. We propose a logistic model to identify the socioeconomic factors that explain the level of awareness of energy technologies in the region. The results show that an effective public policy that aims to increase the technological awareness and promote the adoption of energy-related technologies needs to consider variables such as gender, education, income level and energy-saving behavior and the use of social media.

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.

La electromovilidad como estrategia para una nueva política de transporte público: el caso de Santiago de Chile
El transporte es uno de los sectores más representativos en la generación de contaminación ambiental asociada a emisiones de gases efecto invernadero, llegando a contribuir en América Latina y el Caribe en cerca del 36% del total de emisiones. Adicionalmente, se estima que el ruido ambiental presente en las grandes ciudades proviene hasta en un 70% de la operación este medio de transporte. Gracias a las condiciones tecnológicas ofrecidas por la electromovilidad y a la ruptura de paradigmas asociados a su operación y costo, en últimos años esta se ha convertido en una opción factible para reducir la contaminación ambiental en múltiples dimensiones, observándose la exitosa puesta en operación de buses eléctricos en sistemas de transporte público de países como Chile, Colombia, Paraguay y Ecuador. Dentro de este contexto, este documento tiene como objetivo presentar el proceso llevado a cabo en Santiago de Chile para la implementación del primer proyecto de buses eléctricos a gran escala fuera de China, haciendo especial énfasis en los paradigmas y barreras existentes al momento de su estructuración. Este trabajo abarca aspectos relevantes para el proyecto desde el enfoque operacional y tecnológico, e incluye los elementos claves del modelo de negocio que hizo posible la definición de la política pública de electromovilidad de Chile. La estructura del trabajo incluye el análisis de la situación base, la descripción cronológica de sus principales hitos y los actores involucrados. Los principales análisis presentados se realizan en torno a la serie de pilotos desarrollados para testear mejoras tecnológicas en el sistema y cuyos resultados fueron incluidos en la definición de la imagen objetivo del proyecto seminal de electromovilidad, correspondiente al primer electrocorredor del sistema de transporte de Santiago. Finalmente, se resumen las lecciones aprendidas y las recomendaciones para los tomadores de decisiones que pretendan implementar proyectos similares en ALC.
