Established in 2008, the Latin American and Caribbean Council on Renewable Energy (LAC-CORE) is a membership organization dedicated to bringing renewable energy and energy efficiency to Latin America and the Caribbean. LAC-CORE is committed to creating a network for stakeholders to convene, educate, and collaborate on sustainable energy solutions to increase energy security in the region, thereby enhancing economic development.
Matching innovation, new technology, and financing opportunities to the development of renewable energy markets in Latin American and Caribbean region.
There is a clear need for greater transparency and relationship building between public and private sector agents. Government entities are challenged with identifying the proper channels of communication to share policy developments and programs available for renewable energy industry participants. The private sector perspective is that there are inadequate opportunities to address barriers and share best practices and lessons learned in renewable energy project development.
To Convene – through the organization of conferences, webinars, seminars, workshops, forums, and trade shows to encourage key relationships with energy leaders, multinational agencies, businesses, governments, financiers, and public interest groups.
To Educate – the renewable energy sector as a whole benefits from strong industry and public awareness. LAC-CORE is deeply committed to routinely providing industry leaders in the Latin American and Caribbean regions with expert information.
To Encourage Partnerships – by working with regional organizations, non-governmental groups, and the private sector, LAC-CORE is uniquely positioned to help renewable energy stakeholders locate the partners they need.
LAC-CORE’s leadership brings valuable experience in clean energy financing, policy, technology, communication, project development, and international marketing with a focus on renewable energy, universal energy access, and energy efficiency. The LAC-CORE team is fully qualified and eager to take on the challenge of building a much-needed renewable energy stakeholder network for Latin American and Caribbean.
