About the webinar

The energy requirements of Latin American countries increase year by year. In order to meet sustainable development goals and climate goals, countries must produce energy in a sustainable manner. In this area, the so-called “non-conventional renewable energies”, among which are solar energy, have great potential in several countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Solar heating technology has reached a maturity, not only technological but also price, which today allows developing national and regional strategies to promote water heating with solar energy. In this webinar we will show a study on the analysis of information related to the market of solar water heaters in Barbados, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay, namely. In addition, some conclusions obtained from the information analyzed will be mentioned and it is expected that this will be useful for any locality that decides to carry out a policy of promotion of solar thermal energy.

The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat:
