The 3rd Latin America Energy Forum will address the needs of the evolving Latin America energy sector, exploring the evolution of the region’s energy mix and the role of gas in support of the expanded use of nonconventional renewables.

With government leaders from the US and Latin America joining senior decision makers from the most relevant companies in the industry, this Miami-based summit is a unique chance to explore US – LATAM energy relations and investment opportunities behind government strategies on both sides.


Why Miami?

Florida was second only to Texas in 2014 in net electricity generation from natural gas, and the sunny state ranks 10th in the nation in net generation from utility-scale solar energy. Research conducted through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) signifies that Florida currently ranks 11th in the country for solar market attractiveness. This ranking is based on some factors including energy policies, amount and quality of solar resources, utility rates and customer load match.

Miami is the epicentre of the 3rd Latin America Energy Forum, Miami 2019, the only tailored-made investment forum focusing on stimulating opportunities and aligning efforts amongst power plant owners, developers and EPC contractors to successfully execute projects in Latin America’s booming power market.
