Renewable Electricity Generation in South America: Renewable Energy Generation Scenarios

Access to electrical power plays a key role in socioeconomic development and poverty alleviation in particular. Local generation and use of renewable energy offers significant potential for local economic development as well as a number of environmental advantages. However, the lack of rural electrification in many regions is a major impediment to economic development.
Even though most South American countries have specific and well-defined strategies as well as plans to improve the generation of renewable energy, the actual implementation process is threatened by a wide range of legislative, financial, political, and technological problems.

Within this framework, the overall aim of the project REGSA – Promoting Renewable Electricity Generation in South America, financed by the European Union, is to improve the conditions that will increase the renewable energy generation of electric power in Bolivia, Brazil, and Chile. More specifically, the project promotes initiatives for the analysis of political and regulatory frameworks in the region, the study of good renewable energy practices, the development of pilot infrastructure projects, the generation of energy scenarios, and the transfer of knowledge and technology.
