6th Latin American Energy Economics Meeting
“New Energy Landscape: Impacts for Latin America”
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - April 2-5, 2017 - Hotel Windsor Florida
The global energy scenario has been undergoing drastic changes. After a steady growth during a decade, the oil price heavily fell in 2014. In Latin America, the new reality for the prices is a significant challenge for existing and new oil and gas E&P projects. These projects, such as the Brazilian Pre-salt, have to be competitive, in order to contribute for increasing the global oil supply in the long term. In the electric sector, the integration of renewable sources into the generation matrix and the management of their intermittency are the global challenges. The renewable resources are plentiful in Latin America, and the diffusion of these sources in the region can occur with minor effects in relation to the cost and supply security. In addition, the universalization of energy access remains as an objective for the energy policy in some countries, in the region.
The topic to be addressed in the 6th Latin American Energy Economics Meeting is the challenge for Latin America in relation to the new global energy scenario.
Internationally recognized speakers will be part of this event. Academics, business and political leaders, as well as energy consultants and analysts, will discuss relevant subjects for the future of the energy in the Latin America. The 6th ELAEE is an opportunity for attendees to be informed of the state of the art in the field of energy economics and to interact with the international community.
We invite you to come to Rio to participate in a very relevant conference and to enjoy the beauties of the city and to experience the warmth of the Rio people.
