¿Cómo asegurar el retiro de centrales a carbón sin afectar seguridad de suministro? Lecciones del caso chileno
Todos los procesos de descarbonización se enfrentan al dilema de cómo avanzar en una agenda clara y consistente de retiro del uso del carbón en la generación eléctrica, al mismo tiempo que ello no afecte la seguridad y calidad del sistema eléctrico y constituya una alternativa costo-eficiente. Cuando en Chile se llegó al acuerdo público-privado para el retiro de unidades a carbón en 2019, aproximadamente el 40% de la generación dependía de dicho combustible, por lo que surgieron interrogantes sobre cómo se podría avanzar sin poner en riesgo la seguridad de suministr

Building a more Resilient and Low-Carbon Caribbean - Report 1: Climate Resiliency and Building Materials in the Caribbean
The Caribbean islands are among the 25 most-vulnerable nations in terms of disasters per-capita or land area, and climate change is only expected to intensify these vulnerabilities. The loss caused by climate events drags the ability of the Caribbean countries to invest in infrastructure and social programs, contributing to slower productivity growth, poorer health outcomes, and lower standards of living. Within this context, building resiliency should become a priority for the Caribbean countries. The series “Building a more resilient and low-carbon Caribbean”, focuses on improving the resiliency, sustainability and decarbonization of the construction industry in the Caribbean. The results show that increasing building resiliency is economically viable for the high-risk islands of the Caribbean, generating long term savings and increasing the infrastructure preparedness to the impacts of CC. Report 1 - Climate Resiliency and Building Materials in the Caribbean, presents a quantification of the economic losses caused by climate impact events in the Caribbean Region and correlate these figures with the most common construction materials, typically used in each of the countries building typologies. The losses caused by hurricanes concentrate mostly in the residential infrastructure and are mainly caused by weaknesses in roofs and their connection to the walls. The analysis suggests that improving the resiliency of outer walls and roofs in the Caribbean could significantly reduce the regions vulnerability to hurricanes and other climate impacts.

Mujeres indígenas: agentes claves de la electrificación
Cuando hablamos de transición energética sostenible, muchas veces pensamos en cómo una turbina eólica puede reemplazar la energía generada por una planta de carbón, o cómo la instalación de paneles solares y los vehículos eléctricos sustituyen, cada día más, la energía proveniente de petróleo. Sin embargo, una verdadera transición energética no solo implica reemplazar fuentes

Chile, un ejemplo clave para el cierre de centrales de carbón en la región
Reducir las emisiones de Gases de Efecto Invernadero (GEI) en América Latina y el Caribe conllevan varios desafíos que no se pueden dejar de lado. Teniendo en cuenta que el uso de carbón genera un 25% de las emisiones globales de carbono de acuerdo al World Energy Outlook 2022, reducir su uso es clave para avanzar hacia la carbono neutralidad. Con una demanda eléctrica creciente, los países en desarrollo se enfrentan a muchas dificultades a la hora de analizar el cierre de centrales de carbono existentes, algunas que incluso llevan un par de años en operación.
