Investment in Infrastructure in LAC

Note: Investment in infrastructure includes: telecommunications, electricity, transport (roads and railroads), and water and sanitation. This graph includes the average of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, México y Peru.


latin america investments needs in infrastructure
Latin-America Investments Needs in Infrastructure
  • Latin-America is Investing in Infrastructure Below the Required Demand
    • The LAC Region invest 1.9% of GDP in Infrastructure (US$43.9 billion), the average investment in the developing world is 5% of the GDP.
    • Investment Requirements:
      • 1.0% of the GDP to maintain the existing Infrastructure
      • 1.6% of GDP for new investments related to demand (totaling a 2.6% of the GDP or US$81.2 billion).
    • Example - if LAC were to achieve universal electricity coverage - needs to invest an additional to the above 0.05 % of the GDP per-year.

latin america investment needs in the energy sector
Latin America Investment Needs in the Energy Sector
  • The projected annual energy demand growth is 4.8%.
  • LAC would have to invest approximately US$28 billion per year (2009 – 2026) in the electricity sector alone:
    • Generation US$15 billion (100,000-MW)
    • Transmission from US$4,5 billion
    • Distribution US$8,5 billion
  • Would also have invest between US$80 to US$90 billion in the Oil & Gas sector
    • Conventional production US$68 billion
    • Unconventional production US$9 billion
    • Refining US$5 billion
    • Transport US$4 billion

Hydro power generation per Region

LAC has the 20.5% of the world hydro power generation, while generating just the 3.6% of CO2 emissions.

energy efficiency
Energy Efficiency
  • LAC lags in investments in Energy Efficiency:
    • To reduce consumption
    • To lower peak demands, avoiding less efficient generation and more GHG
  • Most countries have only implemented CFL bulb replacement
  • It is estimated that a reduction of 10% of consumption in LAC through Energy Efficiency could cost some US$17 billion. To supply that energy with capacity expansion would cost some US$53 billion.
  • Areas where more effort is needed:
    • Public Sector Energy Efficiency (buildings and roads)
    • Variable speed motors
    • Efficient cooling & heating
    • Commercial and Residential insulation
    • Load coordination and peak disconnection

Regional Energy Integration: Central American Isthmus Electric Interconnection Project SIEPAC
  • Achieving these savings has required:
    • Participation of Panamá, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador (1996); Colombia (2005); and Mexico (2009).
    • Legal Framework:
      • Treaty among countries (1992).
    • Governance mechanisms:
      • Regional Regulator (CRIE);
      • Grid Operator (EOR);
      • Owner of the Interconnection line
      • Transitory Regulatory framework (2002);
      • Regional Electricity Market regulation (2011).
    • Investments:
      • US$494 million (MDBs, IFIs, Commercial Banks, Countries);
      • Grants from IDB: US$24 million.
  • Estimated expenditures required without SIEPAC (2011-2025):
    • Investments: US$11.7 Billion
    • O&M: US$10.1 Billion
  • Savings with a joint planning of the expansion of capacity and joint operation of the grid:
    • Investments: US$1.2 Billion
    • O&M: US$0.3 Billion
  • Savings with an interconnection with Colombia and a second SIEPAC circuit (2014):
    • Investments: US$2.1 billion
    • O&M: US$1.7 billion
