La Semana de la Energía 2023: Logros y aprendizajes
La región de Latinoamérica y del Caribe, históricamente, ha innovado en el aprovechamiento de los recursos naturales y el desarrollo de mercado de política, planeación y regulación del sector energético. La región también ha dado grandes pasos al acceso universal de energía, hoy en día prácticamente 97% de la población tiene acceso a la electricidad.

Cinco cosas que debes saber sobre el sector energía en América Latina y el Caribe
18 millones de personas no cuentan con acceso a la energía eléctrica en América Latina y el Caribe. En el año 2030, no debería haber ni un solo ciudadano de América Latina y el Caribe sin electricidad. Esta cifra es equivalente a la población de Nicaragua, Costa Rica y Honduras, o cerca de la población

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.

Revisiting Private Participation, Governance, and Electricity Sector Performance in Latin America
This paper revisits the relationship between private participation, regulatory governance and the performance of the electricity sector in 18 Latin American countries over the last five decades. Private investment flows have been consistent overtime, providing around 55% of total electricity investment in the region. We examine the nature, and resultant performance outcomes, of increased private-sector involvement in electricity sub-sectors, including generation capacity, non-conventional renewable energy (NCRE), electricity access, electricity losses, and affordability. The results suggest that private investment and the quality of regulatory governance are positively associated with better performance of the electricity sector. Our long-term examination suggests that private investments strongly contribute to enhancing the quality and efficiency of the electricity sector's performance by increasing generation capacity, increasing the share of renewable energy, increasing access, and reducing electricity losses. Results regarding regulatory quality also indicate a positive association with respect to per capita capacity, electricity coverage, and affordability. Affordability of electricity services also improved in countries with high private participation, while subsidies to the electricity sector declined considerably. These outcomes seem to be enabled and reinforced by independent regulatory governance.

Dimensiones de la infraestructura sostenible en un proyecto
Este curso presenta las cuatro dimensiones de la infraestructura sostenible y explica la relación e impacto de la infraestructura sostenible en las soluciones basadas en la naturaleza, la equidad de género y el empleo. Además, describe de qué manera las asociaciones público-privadas (APP) pueden constituirse en un recurso de valor para la implementación de infraestructura sostenible. Al completar el curso podrás identificar cómo se articula cada una de las dimensiones de la infraestructura sostenible, así como su funcionamiento durante la planeación e implementación de un proyecto. Además, podrás reconocer el rol de las instituciones, así como las estrategias de apoyo y asistencia técnica del BID para favorecer la implementación de proyectos de infraestructura sostenible.

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.
