Summary: The Latin American renewable energy sector has developed well in part because of solid institutions and increasing access to transparent information. The next step in its evolution is an annual event where the regional industry can meet to celebrate its successes, to honor its leaders, and to debate the issues. That event will take place in Miami this October.
