Led by Bryce Rudyk and Danielle Spiegel-Feld, the Guarini Center convened a major international conference to explore barriers and opportunities for deploying renewable energy powered microgrids in Latin America. The workshop drew participants from the international development community, including the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, Inter-American Development Bank, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs; the governments of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Mexico, Panama, and Uruguay; the United Nations; NGOs, academics; and the renewable energy industry. The workshop, which was hosted in collaboration with Solar City, follows an earlier conference that examined the potential for microgrid deployment in Small Island Developing States.
