USAENE has worked with the governments of Latin America and Central America in the development of energy policies that seek to reduce energy consumption in sectors such as residential, industrial and commercial. We have also been present in the private sector in the development of cogeneration projects, estimation of energy efficiency potentials in the productive sector and energy audits.
USAENE has been present before the beginning of the Colombian electricity market, which was established under Laws 142 and 143 of 1994. Our group of senior consultants has extensive experience in regulation, not only advising the private sector but the public sector as well. USAENE has proposed important changes working with different industries such as the sugarcane production sector to develop Law 1715 of 2014, which sought the integration of renewable energy plants to the national interconnected system - SIN. Since then we have worked on the direct promotion of renewable energies.
Additionally, it has designed more than 480 MW of non-conventional renewable energy projects; and has structured more than 20 projects in non-interconnected areas (ZNI) using renewable energies that are providing access to electricity to more than 8,000 users.
We work on the development of important regulatory frameworks that seek to break down barriers that may affect the entry of new technologies. Thus, in Colombia USAENE has been working with government entities in the development of the regulatory framework for the entry of electric vehicles and the use of renewable energies both in the national connected system and in non-interconnected areas.
