Meet The Speakers

Meet Fiona MacAulay

I’d say is that if you’ve worked in the industry for as long as I have, you have to be the kind of person who enjoys and embraces a challenge, because a range of challenges inevitably arise on a daily basis.

Meet Luz Barbero Carbi

In the countries where the public sector works together with the private sector in order to accomplish a diversified energy matrix, on a win-win scenario for the players involved.

Meet Greg Easley

Each individual area of the play comes with its own benefits and complications, as such tailoring your approach to each area is absolutely key.

Meet Walter Lanosa

La competitividad de las energías renovables, donde sus precios al MWh son cada vez más agresivos, gracias a la baja de costos y a nuevos desarrollos tecnológicos

Meet Francisco Diez Quiralte

The biggest challenge in the region? Political and financial stability – in order to contain sovereign and off-taker credit risks.

Meet Jose Luis Vittor

The region is at an inflection point. The near future will depend on the vision of policymakers allowing the private sector to plan and invest in long-term strategies for durable growth, as well as promoting a realistic balance in the energy matrix.

I always find this to be one of the most effective venues for us to see clients and partners.”

Lance Crist

“Thank you to the Energy Council Team for your incredible work and world-class organization at this event. I truly appreciate your coordination and support for arranging my personal meetings and assisting me when required. I was surprised that the day after the conference was finished I had available for download the event showguide, presentation slides, key event documents and photos. Impeccable work.
Thank you again. I will definitely recommend that my colleagues participate at your next event. Looking forward to seeing you again.”

Dr Jorge Vallmitjana

“Once again, many thanks for inviting me to the event. It was very useful, and I had a great time. I don’t have many benchmarks on similar events, but I can assure you that anyone can tell that it was top notch- great speakers, ample Power & Energy and Financial Sponsors network, excellent location and very nice food. Hope to see you next year!'”
