This report, currently only available in Spanish, is a collaborative effort led by Chile Sustentable and IPS, with contributions from eleven other groups from Mexico to Argentina. It's the summary version of a much longer document that attempted to merge more than a dozen national reports into one regional analysis. The summary provides a detailed accounting of data describing the current energy matrix in Latin America. The region depends heavily on fossil fuels and energy demand is expected to increase faster than supply. Coupled with pressure to boost exports to to the U.S. and Europe, that means the region faces an energy security crisis.
