Coal-fueled electricity generation in South America

Coal-fired electricity generation is one of the most reliable ways to increase power supply. With electricity demand soaring across South America and plentiful private-sector cash available for investment, a wave of power plants is likely to be built in the next five years. The projects bring opportunities for equipment suppliers, consultants and generation companies that are prepared for this opening. While coal plants will continue to cause controversy, some will be built. This report analyzes the present construction boom, identifies business opportunities and points to the risks associated with both business and national governments.

Mining Survey 2014: Accepting the new reality

BNamericas' Mining Survey 2014 shows deteriorating sentiment across most indicators, reflecting players' acknowledgement of the new reality facing the sector - softer metals prices, poor access to capital, lower spending, reduced exploration activity. In terms of investment climate, Argentina has emerged as the worst ranked nation. Chile remains 'the best,' but more fragile as a growing contingent believes the climate could worsen in the coming year.

Oil and Gas Survey 2014: Opportunities abound

While the percentage of survey respondents who said Latin America is a good place for the oil and gas business dipped this year (from 80% to 70%), some 80% said Latin America will be increasingly important as an oil and gas supplier in the coming decade, indicating that while there might be some cause for concern in 2014, the longer term picture remains attractive. This is underpinned by the amount of resources in place, encouraging governments in some cases, and by strong, stable oil prices. Colombia continues to be seen favorably as a destination for oil and gas explorers. Mexico has risen in the estimation of survey takers. Argentina too is gaining significant interest for its unconventional potential, and survey takers were decidedly more favorable about the country this year than last.

Argentina's energies of the future

Congressional elections in Argentina made it clear that support for the government of Cristina Fernández is waning and change is on the horizon. In the energy sector, a shift in direction will come as welcome news. Ever since the crisis of 2001-2002, Argentina's energy infrastructure has been in gradual decline. Today, power cuts are commonplace, as are gas shortages. Energy projects have been stalled, foreign investment has dried up, and the state occupies itself by scampering to find expensive, short-term solutions to providing supply. But because of its world class resources, Argentina has the potential to reinvent its energy sector, particularly in two areas: wind and natural gas. With the right policy changes, some of which are already starting to be seen, could Argentina become a regional hub for the development of the energies of the future?

Biofuels in Latin America: The state of play

Latin America accounts for roughly a quarter of global biofuel production each year and is home to one of the industry's pioneering markets - Brazil with its homegrown sugarcane ethanol sector. But in the last few years, ethanol's share of Brazil's fuel matrix has declined as production volumes slumped and uncertainties undermined the sugarcane sector. More recently, the other regional biofuel powerhouse, Argentina, has also faltered. The country's export-oriented biodiesel industry is facing the prospect of tariffs and other restrictions in its principal market, the EU. Has the Brazilian biofuels sector recovered and can its ethanol regain lost ground in the domestic market? And in Argentina, will biodiesel producers find another buyer abroad, or will they, or can they, look to local consumers?

Shale resources in Latin America

Latin America as a whole could hold 1,900 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas resources, approximately 30% of the world's total, and it has numerous liquid-prone basins. Around 90% of the region's shale gas and an overwhelming majority of its share oil is concentrated in three countries: Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. Besides these three nations, Colombia has also been very keen on developing its shale potential. Much of the future of shale development will depend on the delicate balance between below-ground potential and above-ground risk.

Nuclear power in Latin America: Perspectives after Fukushima Daiichi

The nuclear crisis in Japan that followed the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country's east coast in 2011 had a profound impact on a number of mature economies, while in Latin American countries the effect has been varied. Chile's position on the nuclear issue remains indecisive, while Venezuela decided to freeze their studies on adding nuclear power to their electricity production capacities. The three countries in the region who already have nuclear power plants in operation (Argentina, Brazil and Mexico) have said that they will not change the plans they have announced over the past three years.

Broadband proliferation: An uphill battle

Most governments around the world have responded energetically to the idea that digital inclusion helps nations become more competitive with their peers and perhaps even catch up with more developed regions. All recognize that access to IT hardware resources is meaningless without suitable broadband connectivity, and in trying to resolve this part of the puzzle they run into the problem of balancing social benefit with the commercial aspects needed to make broadband self-sustaining. In this report we consider the complexity of not only achieving broadband proliferation but also ensuring that such infrastructure delivers the national development expected.
