Hydropower in Latin America: Adapting to New Realities

 

After peaking at 63% in 1993, hydro’s share in the regional generation mix has been in slow decline.

Hydropower is a mainstay on Latin American electrical grids. It is the dominant electricity source in countries like Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela and comprises a sizeable share of the supply in most others. However, a confluence of factors has undermined the reliability of existing plants and increased project risk for developers of new dams. This report examines the evolving role of hydropower in Latin America.
