We are delighted to announce that this year’s Canning House Renewable Energy in Latin America Conference will once again be generously hosted by Eversheds Sutherland at their London offices on the Thursday 14th March. This event is jointly organised by Canning House and Eversheds Sutherland, and kindly sponsored by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

The conference will cover the main opportunities for clean energy investment in Latin America, including private PPA markets, government-led programmes, project finance, investment protection and most recent regulatory developments. It will be an opportunity to observe the developments over the past year, consider the challenges and investment opportunities, as well as understand the policy frameworks in place and their implications for international investors.
