Welcome to the June edition of Energy Panorama. We are pleased to share this month’s featured report, the summary and panel notes from the XXVIII La Jolla Energy Conference, as well as video highlights and sideline interviews.
As the summary reflects, the conference this year again contemplated the elements comprising the transformation rippling across the global energy sector. Conference discussions explored many of the angles, players, and implications associated with the global energy transition trends and developments, but also what is driving investment in the sector and where it is coming from.
Several discussions included a view over the horizon for issues and developments that will shape the Latin American energy sector of tomorrow. This was particularly true with a lively opening workshop focused on lithium and the so-called Lithium Triangle in Argentina, Chile and Bolivia.
Panels and breakout sessions delved into myriad segments of the energy sector such as cyber security, transparency and corruption, natural gas and renewables, roof top vs. utility scale energy resources, grid flexibility, regional integration, among others. There was also ample time and robust discussion focused on key country-specific developments in the region including Colombia, Mexico, Argentina and Venezuela.
Our podcast series this month assessed the importance of Argentina’s historic first LNG export cargo and Energy Transition Initiative Director Cecilia Aguillon contributed commentary on digital technology in Latin America’s power sector for the Inter-American Dialogue’s Energy Advisor.
We look forward to our collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Non Renewable Natural Resources in Ecuador for our Energy Roundtable set for July 25 in Quito, as well as our partnership with IPD Latin America for the inaugural Madrid Energy Conference set for Sep 4-6 in Madrid, Spain.
