The Office of Energy Efficiency and
Renewable Energy (EERE) is involved
in a variety of international initiatives,
partnerships, and events that promote
greater understanding and use of
renewable energy (RE) and energy
efficiency (EE) worldwide.
In support of the Energy and Climate
Partnership of the Americas (ECPA),
EERE is working with several Latin
American countries to advance EE and
RE deployment for economic growth,
energy security, poverty relief, and
disaster recovery goals.
EERE's projects in the region are
Argentina - Binational
Energy Working Group
During meetings in August 2009, U.S.
government officials and counterparts
from Argentina's Energy Secretariat
agreed to explore the formation of
a binational energy-working group
to enhance joint collaboration on
low-carbon energy activities. To that
end, EERE is working to identify
key opportunities for collabora-
tion in the following priority areas
defined by both countries: Climate
Change Renewable Energy Impact
Analysis, Energy Efficiency and Energy
Service Company (ESCO) Market
Development, Energy Efficiency Codes,
Standards and Auditing, and Net
Metering Regulatory Policy Analysis.
Brazil - Binational Energy
Working Group and Biofuels
EERE will support initiatives that
come out of newly reinvigorated
bilateral energy dialogues. Partners
for the biofuels cooperation include
the Ministry of Foreign Relations,
Ministry of Science and Technology, Petrobras, and others. Other EERE initiatives
in Brazil involve a techno-economic evaluation of advanced sugarcane refinery, a
thermo-chemical production analysis, a life cycle assessment of biofuels to examine
the sustainability of biofuels, direct/indirect land-use change, the benefits of inte-
grated biorefineries (greenhouse gas reductions), and international conservation.
EERE is also collaborating with partners in Brazil on advanced biofuel production
R&D methods, standards, and analysis tools. In the solar area, EERE is working
with Brazilian scientists on silicon solar cell technology.
Caribbean Region - RE Assessment and EE Training
In support of several Caribbean governments and the Organization of American
States (OAS), EERE will assist with local training initiatives and technical pro-
grams that show how to conduct energy efficiency audits and retrofits. EERE will
also be involved with initiatives to strengthen communities' capacity to review and
evaluate resource assessments related to indigenous renewable natural resources.
This project will engage St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, The
Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Partners
include the CARICOM Secretariat, the Caribbean Electric Utilities Association
(CARILEC), and the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership
Chile - Renewable Energy Center and CSP Solicitation
EERE is assisting Chile's National Energy Commission (CNE) as it establishes
a new renewable energy center. The center will serve as a clearinghouse of informa-
tion and analytic tools and leading source of expertise on renewable energy tech-
nologies for Chile and the region. EERE is also participating in relief efforts in the
aftermath of the earthquake, and supporting CNE as it develops a solicitation for a
10 MW concentrating solar power (CSP) project.
Colombia - Pyrolysis Project
EERE is providing assistance to Colombia with the development of a techno-
economic plan for pyrolysis of the agro-industrial residue biomass, which will
Here’s what’s next.
