Country Power Market Brief: Colombia

Colombia’s large untapped potential for rural electrification is coupled with the government’s willingness and support to expand the renewable energy sector. A large portion of Colombia’s territory is located outside the National Interconnected System, and as grid extension to rural areas is often prohibitively expensive, decentralised and off-grid solutions based on biomass, geothermal, hydro, solar and wind energy present a viable alternative to energy provided by the national grid. These solutions, combined with the significant willingness to pay in rural areas, result in a very promising future towards full electricity access in Colombia.

This Market Brief - The Colombia Off-Grid Market in 12 Pages: Players and Business Opportunities - was put together by the Alliance and the Berkeley Rural Energy Group (BREG) to assess the legal and governmental framework, key stakeholders and business opportunities of Colombia’s off-grid market.
