Meet The Speakers

Meet Douglas Rezende

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 Francisco Diez Quiralte

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

Meet Robert Klein

I truly appreciate your coordination and support for arranging my personal meetings and assisting me when required.
