Latin America and the Caribbean is a region with abundant sources of renewable energy, especially when it comes to solar energy. It is home to some of the sunniest places on the planet, including the Atacama Desert, which has the highest solar irradiance in the world and potential to generate enough electricity to power all of South America. The region has an immense potential for renewable energy development and has recently been experiencing a significant growth in the amount of installed solar PV capacity. Besides the ever increasing demand for energy, climate change and the rise in frequency of natural disasters have also been key factors influencing the growth in investments in green energy sources. All of these factors have caused investors to flock to the region to become part of its renewable energy revolution.
