Title: Energy Integration In Latin America And Caribbean (lac) Region
Author: Cencig M.O.
Abstract: There is a wide diversity - economic, political, social and cultural - between countries of the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Region. Particularly, there are significant differences on primary energy supply and consumption for each country. For example: Venezuela and Mexico are important producers of oil and natural gas, so Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia; Colombia has big coal reserves; hydroelectric power is abundant (there are 8 countries linked to the Amazon Basin), Itaipu is operated by Brazil and Paraguay together; there are nuclear facilities only in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico; the Brazilian Alcohol Program (PROALCOOL, started in 1975) is the major program on renewable energy in Brazil and the biggest ethanol program in the World. However, despite the differences, the proportion of renewable energy is higher than world average.
