Mexico City, February 20, 2006


The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) launched a new initiative, the Latin American Regional Sustainable Energy Policy Development Forum at the Grid Connected Renewable Energy Policy Forum in Mexico.

Building on the work at the Grid Connected Forum, which was sponsored by the Mexican Government and the World Bank, the REEEP's Sustainable Energy Regulatory Network has decided to expand its work in Africa over to Latin America.

The newly launched Latin American Policy Forum is focused on ensuring that the appropriate regulatory structures exist for the acceleration of renewable energy across the region. The project will:

assemble a comprehensive survey of regional sustainable energy policies; identify gaps and reform measures; and work with key stakeholders to develop result oriented strategies for critical reforms.

The initial round of policy surveys will include Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua.
