ECLAC: Caribbean has right conditions to become renewable energy hub

The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) says the region has all the right conditions to become a renewable energy hub with great potential in green hydrogen. “Several countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have advantages for entering this market because their electricity matrices are relatively clean or are in the process of being decarbonized,” said ECLAC’s Executive Secretary Alicia Bárcena during a high-level panel held in the framework of Latin America Energy Week, organized by the international company Siemens Energy.
