Latin America Hydrogen Focus – Thursday 10th & Friday 11th June 2021

Access the Latest Developments to Accelerate Hydrogen Development in LATAM

 

LATAM has a huge potential to become one of the world’s hydrogen powerhouses. With vast renewable resources in the region, such as wind, water, solar and others, LATAM is positioning to become a major green hydrogen exporter, supplying global markets with the required green energy and meeting North America’s energy demand and energy security. According to the IEA, Latin America has a central place in the future hydrogen economy, thanks to the sustained development of hydropower in the 20th century, renewables make up 55% of Latin America’s power generation, much higher than the global average of 35% (1).

Pinpoint the Brightest Hydrogen Developments in the Americas


LATAM countries are at different stages of hydrogen planning and projects. Chile has launched in the end of 2020 its Hydrogen Strategy, aiming to put this clean resource at the centre of the energy transition with Chile poised to become a large hydrogen exporter. Chile’s hydrogen production from renewable electricity could be among the cheapest in the world. Argentina has been a pioneer regionally and globally for producing hydrogen from renewable electricity. Uruguay and Paraguay are also ahead with pilot hydrogen projects planned or under operation, whilst Colombia’s energy producers and Government are analysing the role of hydrogen in the energy mix. Countries such as Brazil, Peru and Mexico show huge potential for both green and blue hydrogen production.

Align Your Hydrogen Business with Key Developments in Other Regions


Regional collaboration and cooperation and public-private partnerships will be paramount to move hydrogen projects in LATAM and take advantages of regional synergies, network development, infrastructure retrofitting, hydrogen supply value chain, among others.

Gathering Renowned Speakers from the Hydrogen Industry


Meet with governments, energy producers, regulators, technology holders and end-users and buyers to gain a deep understanding of which projects and regulations are currently under development, the timelines and investment opportunities.

Join the Rise of a Mega-Billion Hydrogen Industry


According to the IEA, Latin America has a central place in the future hydrogen economy, thanks to the sustained development of hydropower in the 20th century, renewables make up 55% of Latin America’s power generation, much higher than the global average of 35%.
