Market Outlook

The Latin America renewable energy market is supported by the global renewable energy market growth, which reached an installed capacity of nearly 2455 gigawatts in 2019. The industry in Latin America is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.13% in the forecast period of 2020-2025.

The Latin America renewable energy industry is expected to be driven by the steady growth in hydro and biomass across the region. Hydropower is the leading sector in the region, accounting for nearly 81% of the market. The region receives high solar radiation and the project cost of solar is also lower as compared to the other areas owing to the locally available solar technologies, making it a highly attractive investment. Chile, especially, is expected to exhibit accelerated growth in solar capacity addition in the region. Countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Peru are investing in the wind capacity to diversify their alternative power portfolio.

The rising awareness among consumers with respect to the environmental issues caused by the use of conventional power sources such as coal, fossil fuel, etc., has led to an increasing preference for alternative power projects by many countries. In 2017, the global renewable energy industry witnessed an investment of about USD 280 billion. Hydro, solar, and wind power are the leading sources for alternative and sustainable power generation globally.

Properties and Applications

Renewable energy is generated from sources that are naturally replenishable, meaning they do not deplete in a human’s lifetime. Renewable energy such as wind, biomass, solar, and hydropower, among others, are few of the common examples. They do not harm the environment like non-renewable sources or conventional sources such as fossil fuels. The energy derived from such alternative power sources is used in the generation of electricity, transport, air, and water cooling or heating, and other services.

On the basis of types, the industry can be divided into:

  • Hydropower
  • Bioenergy
  • Bagasse 
  • Others

The EMR report also covers the regional markets in Latin America, like Brazil, Argentina, and Mexico, among others.

Market Analysis

The Latin America renewable energy market is driven by the high investment in the small bioenergy capacities connected to the grid. The abundant availability of raw materials such as woods and bio-wastes in the region is enhancing the bioenergy in the region, bolstering the market growth in Latin America. The alternative power sources in the region are significantly affected by hydro and biomass, among other sources. Few countries such as Chile and Brazil are witnessing rising solar and wind investments. Hydro power is the key source of energy generation in most countries in Latin America, which is augmenting the industry growth.

Latin America exhibits excellent potential for hydropower. In 2018, the total installed capacity of hydropower was 170.82 gigawatts. Although the effect of solar and wind power is less, it is expected to have strong growth in the public and private investment. In Brazil, hydroelectric power will remain a substantial contributor to the overall electricity production of Brazil, and it is expected to receive continued healthy investments. Wind power is expected to go through the largest relative growth, multiplying by more than ten times in the ten-year period. Electricity generation through biomass is majorly being driven by the sugarcane and pulp processing industries, further strengthening the industry growth in Latin America. In Brazil, the solar potential is high, which is untapped yet due to a lack of government support.

Argentina is expected to achieve a 20% demand for national energy from renewable sources by 2025. The country is inviting the best energy companies in its auction 2 gigawatts of renewable power projects. The country is expected to develop policies and award contracts with the help of the RenovAr program to help provide widespread alternative power projects in solar, wind, and biomass. In 2017, the Argentina government announced it the ‘renewable energy year.’ The electricity consumption of the country is increasing due to the rising use of the residential and commercial sectors, catalysing the industry in Argentina.
