Bolivia and Venezuela: The good and the bad of the Bolivarian transportation and water management model

Venezuela and Bolivia are showing a clear resistance to the development of infrastructure projects via public-private partnerships (PPPs). Thus companies in this area are limited to participation in public investment projects as service providers, either in design or construction, or as suppliers of equipment and technology. Priorities are focused on the construction of highways, urban roads and mass transit systems, including new solutions unprecedented in the region.

Geothermal warms up slowly in Latin America

Geothermal heat no longer conjures up merely an image of a beautiful geyser or hot springs for tourists. Instead many countries are taking it seriously as a renewable, safe, long-term energy source, which has competitive costs and is less polluting than traditional energy sources. Since the oil crisis of 1972, the world, and in particular the countries of Latin America, a region with enormous geothermal potential, have made efforts to incorporate the energy source into their grids, with mixed results. This report looks at the state of geothermal power in Latin America by tracing its historical development, and offering an assessment of the state of the power source today, and the stumbling blocks holding it back.
