Policy Brief

Author(s): 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.
