Renewable Energy Latin America represents one of the most promising regions in terms of renewable energies, especially due to its richness in natural resources. An often-stated example relates to the solar radiation in Brazil, as its place with the lowest daily average of radiation still exceeds the highest local average in Germany, one of the leading countries in the use of solar energy. Climatescope (2015) explains the recent growth of Latin-American investments in renewable energies by the rising awareness of governments and planning agencies for the need to diversify the national energy mix. For example, many countries rely on large hydro plants for the generation of electricity, which are a renewable source but due to droughts a very vulnerable. Renewables represent the most promising way to secure the electricity supply and to avoid the high costs of gas or diesel plants. Some Projects: Renewable Energy Investor Attractiveness - comparative study in Latin American Prof. Rolf Wuestenhagen One of the key focused topics of the Impact Investing Latin America research platform is Renewable Energies in the context of emerging economies. In this area we develop research and front-line projects related to: a) Business Models & Investment; b) Impact Measurement. In the latest project, team formed by three master students from the University of St.Gallen, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Rolf Wuestenhagen, performed a comparative study about investor attractiveness in the Renewable Energy sector in Colombia, Chile and Brazil.
