About the webinar

A zero-carbon economy is necessary to stabilize the climate. It is worth saying that this economy is technically feasible and comes with opportunities for the development of Latin American countries. However, the energy transition can generate losers and winners, which can make its implementation politically difficult.

For example, several countries in the region depend on oil tax revenues, but demand may be affected by the global transition to electric vehicles, renewable energy and the implementation of the Paris Agreement. A study by the IDB and UCL shows that 66-81% of oil reserves in LAC could remain untapped by 2035, which could cost the region up to $4 trillion in royalties.

Another example is the electricity sector. A second study accounts for the CO2 emissions that will be emitted during the operation of existing and planned power plants during their useful life. This study concludes that 10% to 16% of existing power plants may need to be “abandoned” to meet the goals of the Paris agreement, and that building more gas, oil or coal-fired plants in the region may be inconsistent with these goals.

This webinar will explain how long-term decarbonization strategies can be an instrument to anticipate and avoid stranded assets in the transition to zero net emissions. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LAC LEDS Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org
