Carlos Alvarez, ALADI secretary general, said this is an important instrument for entities such as the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac).


When presenting the report, Alvarez highlighted the usefulness for energy integration of the region and also the fact that it has been elaborated by eight specialized organizations.


During the presentation executives of these organizations highlighted the challenges of the topic, such as efficiency, connection, access, sustainability, and infrastructure.


They pointe dout that 32 million Latin Americans are still living without energy, and the need for all of them to have access to basic services.


Entities such as the Latin American Energy Organization, the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, the Latin American Development Bank, the Organization of American States and others, took part in the report.
