Reflections on COP26: implications for Colombia and its environmental commitments

Grace Quinceno

In its participation in the COP26 in Glasgow, Colombia ratified its commitment to reduce GHG emissions by 51% by 2030, as presented in the Nationally Determined Contributions updated in December 2020. To achieve this goal, different actions and strategies were presented: diversification of the electricity matrix, use of electric vehicles, protection of land and marine territory, and joint activities with other countries in the region. It was also able to secure financing for more than US$1.2 billion from multilateral agencies and partner countries to meet the goals established. However, despite the actions presented by the current government, the country faces great challenges to meet its climate objectives: adjustments in the economic model, socio-environmental conflicts and the Peace Agreement, or the governance and presence of the State in the territory.

Barriers to distributed solar power in Colombia

Andrea Ruíz López, Felipe Corral, Pao-Yu Oei, Claudia Kemfert, Carlos Yepes, Sandra Rendón

This report focuses on the Colombian electricity system and the role that an alternative electricity generation, the Distributed Generation of Solar Photovoltaic Energy (DFV), can play in bringing Colombia closer to decarbonization in line with its climate commitments to the Paris Agreements. In addition, it studies this technology as an alternative that can reduce energy costs and strengthen the stability of the grid as well as the country’s economy in a relatively short period of time, and sets out to identify the main barriers to greater deployment of distributed solar power, as well as possible ways to overcome them.
