    Colombia and Germany meet to discuss renewable energies

    December 9, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The Colombian Ministries of Commerce, Industry and Tourism; of Mines and Energy; the Confederation of German Industry, BDI and the Colombian Embassy in Germany will lead the "Bi-national Colombian-German Dialogue on Colombia's reindustrialization policy based on renewable energies and the development of the green hydrogen sector", to be held in the city of Cartagena de Indias, on December 9.

      The event is held in order to develop the strategic agenda of Colombia's reindustrialization policy, leveraged on the process of just energy transition through renewable energy, and with the intention of turning the country into an exporter of clean energy.

      Global conflicts and uncertainty about future world energy supply have made visible the importance of having strategic partners, whether public or private, that can address sustainable energy development.

      That is why the Embassy of Colombia in Germany has been concerned about advancing in the dialogues to strengthen bilateral cooperation with the European country on the issue concerning the energy sector and the renewable energy industry.

      Colombia ranks sixth among the countries with more water resources worldwide and has an optimal combination of factors for the installation of solar and wind farms, as well as for the production and export of energy such as green hydrogen to countries with high energy demand such as Germany.

      But the advantages for energy production are not only natural resources. Currently, Colombia has a dynamic business environment, with extensive experience in power generation, as well as in the management and transportation of gases. All these elements, as well as the use of existing infrastructure, contribute to accelerate the development of renewable energies and the production of green hydrogen and its derivatives.

      The event's program will be complemented with the opening of the space where the Regional Training Center for Renewable Energy, Cerfer, will operate at the Ecopetrol Innovation Center. The opening of this center is one more step in the consolidation of a space for concrete training, programs and resources.

      This event reinforces the relationship that Colombia and Germany have cultivated for 150 years based on common values, such as democracy, respect for human rights and fair economic cooperation.

      Currently, Colombia is in the top five nations leading the energy transition in the world, preceded by countries such as Chile, India and China.

      The country has stood out for the implementation of state policies on clean energy and for the incentives it has developed for the energy transition.

      "The energy transition in Colombia is going full speed ahead and within the Roadmap for the Just Energy Transition led by the Ministry of Mines and Energy, foreign investment will play a key role specifically in the generation of renewable energy, which adds to the efforts for the transformation of Colombia with environmental, economic and social justice promoted by the government of President Gustavo Petro," said the president of ProColombia, Carmen Caballero.
