ADELAT signs a cooperation agreement with OLADE to deepen the role of electricity distribution as a key player in the energy transition in Latin America

The Association of Latin American Electricity Distributors and the Latin American Energy Organization formalized through a Memorandum of Understanding Mutual Collaboration to start initiatives that understand the challenges faced by the countries of the region for their energy transformation.

The objective is to focus on new technologies and best management and sustainability practices, understanding the place of the distribution segment in order to be prepared for these changes and, consequently, plan the required investments. It is essential to highlight the need to implement regulatory improvements and understand the nuances of each territory and its inhabitants.

The executive director of ADELAT, Ignacio Santelices Ruiz, and the director of Strategy and Institutional Relations, Aniella Descalzi, signed this agreement with the executive secretary of OLADE, Andrés Rebolledo Smitmans.

“OLADE is the main regional actor in energy issues and we know that this alliance will allow us to accelerate the modernization of electricity distribution to have a successful energy transition in Latam,” Santelices said.

For his part, the Executive Secretary of OLADE, Andrés Rebolledo Smitmans, stated that “this agreement between OLADE and ADELAT represents another milestone in our mission to promote regional energy integration and energy sustainability for Latin America and the Caribbean. We consider dialogue with the private sector essential to be able to promote the best energy policies“.

For ADELAT it is a great satisfaction to establish this type of ties and thus help build the reality of energy transformation in the region. The goal is to benefit all citizens from the deep modernization of electricity distributors.
