About the South America Energy Series


The gradual expansion of renewable energy sources will have considerable impacts on the South America energy system with regards to utilities, grid infrastructure, and energy efficiency. Integrating greater amounts of energy from renewable sources in tandem with creating greater efficiencies from existing fuel sources in the energy mix, will require significant, yet essential, investment by power and transmission companies. 

Existing projections and proven reserves also point to a new paradigm in South America’s gas markets. How will the re-birth of the US as a reliable, high volume, low cost global supplier and the potential of Argentina and Brazil to move from LNG customers to LNG suppliers affect regional dynamics and drive demand and utilization.

All of this means the time for investing in South America is now. 

From 28 - 30 April 2021, the South America Energy Series will bring gas & LNG, power & renewables leaders and the global energy community together in a virtual edition to drive towards a cleaner & more sustainable future.

SAES 2021 is uniquely positioned at this important time to provide a platform for the industry to forge partnerships, showcase innovation and drive the industry forward.

SAES 2021: Focus on Colombia

Strategically located in South America Colombia is connected to Central America & the Caribbean and is the only country in South America with access to two oceans. Colombia is one of the best business environments in Latin America and one of the most competitive countries in the region. Colombia is just getting started in the non-conventional renewable sources and in the last few years has accelerated from 1% to 15% of installed capacity, leading to untapped opportunities in the energy sector. 

Colombia also has big potential on offshore Oil & Gas, the national hydrocarbons agency (ANH) reckons the prospective resource of oil and gas under the Colombian Caribbean seabed is the equivalent of 6bn barrels of oil (source: Financial Times)

As the Oil & Gas, Power & Utilities markets draw closer together and experience strong growth and change, there has never been a more important time for the community to come together, forge partnerships, do business and define the future of the energy sector in Colombia and the region.
