  • 100% virtual event takes place between the 22nd and 24th of June
  • Nine scenarios and trends panels to drive energy transformation in Latin American and Caribbean countries
  • Conference will feature members of the executive board of Siemens Energy, as well as representatives of the private sector, associations and government ministers from the region

 

One of the biggest – and increasingly urgent – ​​challenges of the millennium for companies from different sectors is to maintain their economic growth, meet their energy needs and, at the same time, fight climate changes that threaten the planet. With the mission to discuss these and other important topics that will define the energy sector in the near future, Siemens Energy organizes the “Energy Week Latin America”, a digital conference that takes place between June 22nd and 24 th. 

With the motto "Shaping the Future of Energy", the event's mission is to connect energy companies, market leaders, government representatives and civil associations so that these important forces can, together, address regional challenges and opportunities on the journey towards energy transformation and decarbonization.

Over nine panels, distinguished national and international guests will address topics involving co-creation in the sustainable solutions development for energy supply, the growing need to integrate the existing infrastructure with the most current systems, as well as scenarios for structuring holistic and competitive financing models. Major innovations that are emerging as bets on the climate change challenge, such as the large-scale production of green hydrogen and digitalization technologies, will also play an important role in the debates that will be conducted at the conference.

“Establish a regional discussion platform such as Latin America Energy Week is essential to foster innovative, decarbonized and competitive solutions that will contribute to pave the way for a bright energy future in Latin America and Caribbean. This is an excellent opportunity to take the best of local synergies in favor to effective measures that aim to drive energy transformation in these countries,” says Tim Holt, Board Member of Siemens Energy for Latin America.

The event will also foster diversity initiatives to build a fairer and more inclusive society. Therefore, Latin America Energy Week will have a space for dialogue on the essential role that inclusion and diversity play on the pavement of a sustainable future for organizations and society, by increasing innovation, performance and productivity.

Partner institutions for this Latin America Energy Week include: the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHK); IDB Invest (a member of the Inter-American Development Bank Group); the German Energy Agency (DENA); the Latin America Committee of German Business (LADW); the World Energy Council from Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Mexico (WEC); and Siemens Gamesa.
