Abstract: Large reductions in the cost of renewable energy technologies, particularly wind and solar, as well as various instruments used to achieve decarbonization targets (e.g., renewable mandates, renewable auctions, subsidies, and carbon pricing mechanisms) are driving the rapid growth of investments in these generation technologies worldwide.

Abstract: Following the trend observed in developed economies, various Latin American governments are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, particularly in the power sector. In countries such as Chile, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, and Mexico, various regulatory policies have been issued to meet renewable-generation integration targets and satisfy the increasing demand from consumers for supply quality. Meanwhile, the integration of distributed generation (DG) in rural and urban areas as well as the increasing need to integrate electric vehicles (EVs) in urban areas are driving important reforms in the distribution sector.
