Overview

Central America is rich in natural resources and boasts some of the highest penetrations of renewable energy in the world. To date hydropower has dominated the landscape for renewable generation, but as countries look for power sources that don’t come with a high environmental and social price tag, the development of geothermal, wind, solar and biomass have become regional priorities. Factor in a regional transmission line that can carry clean energy across borders, and it is increasingly clear that the Central American market is poised for the next wave of clean energy investment.

Launched in collaboration with CABEI, CAMRIS is the definitive gathering of the Central American renewable energy market. Designed to create transparency around opportunities for investment and project development on a market-by-market basis, CAMRIS will gather a who’s who of regional and international stakeholders for two days of highly granular discussion and debate around the future of the regional renewables market.
