"Clean energy investment in many of these countries has now reached equity with Brazil," said St. James. "The region represents a real opportunity for investment and more success stories like the ones we heard this week from Barbados, Costa Rica, Mexico and Aruba."
"Growth in our industry is supported by investment and smart policy decisions throughout Latin America and the Caribbean," said Dennis V. McGinn, president, American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE). "The value chains we are creating are compelling. I am optimistic about the future, based on the knowledge we have shared during the past two days."
The next Renewable Energy Finance Forum will be the 10th anniversary REFF-Wall Street, taking place June 25-26 in New York.
On April 30-May 1, REFF-LAC addressed the rapidly changing state of renewable energy finance, and insights about the path ahead, with a specific focus on the Central, Latin American and Caribbean markets and how they are interacting with the broader global markets.
REFF-LAC is hosted by Euromoney Energy Events and the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE), in partnership with the Latin American & Caribbean Council on Renewable Energy (LAC-CORE). REFF-LAC is made by the industry, for the industry. For more information, visit http://www.refflac.com/index.php.
