IOA Colombia Energy 2018

23 - 24 October 2018

ERM is sponsoring and presenting at the IOA Colombia Energy 2018.

The inherent challenges facing the sector are heightened by the regional and global context of the energy transformation and the rush to innovate and incorporate a growing level of competitive non-hydro renewables. In some segments of the energy sector, such as hydrocarbons, there is what might be best described as paralysis. In others, such as how to manage renewable energy integration, there are laws and regulations under development but that are relatively unclear as to the implementation strategy and overarching goals. In this event there will be roundtables and panels aimed at informing and assessing the Duque government’s vision and outlook for the energy sector and role for oil & gas and renewables.
