The Road to Net Zero in Latin America
How investors, energy companies and suppliers can maximize opportunities while avoiding pitfalls in the region's top 6 markets
On April 27 our team held a webinar in partnership with TMX to discuss 2022 opportunities in Brazil’s energy sector. Opportunities are now surging on a variety of fronts:
- Brazil has increased oil production by 10% to replace the deficit caused by economic sanctions on Russia
- Brazil’s congress has also approved the sale of Eletrobras, the largest public utility in Latin America
- Investors are also capitalizing on Brazil’s biomethane and distributed generation incentives
For this webinar, a distinguished panel of speakers joined Arthur Deakin, codirector of AMI’s energy practice, to discuss these opportunities and the risks/challenges associated with them. These speakers include:
- Ricardo Szlejf, Managing Director–Infrastructure, CPP Investment Board
- Guilherme Arantes, Director of the Electrical Sector, The Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES)
- Rupert Merer, Managing Director, Sustainable Infrastructure and Cleantech, National Bank Financial
Corey Ruttan, President & CEO, Alvopetro
- David Chelich, Head, Business Development, Global Energy and Diversified Industries, TMX Group
The event opened with a detailed analysis that I provided that included:
- A breakdown of overall impact of higher energy prices in Brazil and 11 other key Latin American energy markets
- Projections for Brazil’s oil and gas production from now through 2031
- Projections for micro and mini distributed installed capacity in Brazil through 2031
- Main causes for continued growth in installed capacity
- Current and possible future investments and mergers as a result of Brazil’s market liberalization
- Estimated investments in Brazil’s energy matrix through 2031
And much more. After my analysis, the webinar featured a detailed Q&A session with the panelists covering specific opportunities.
