Latin American Energy Organization: Sustainable Energy Use in Latin America
Chair: Caleb Richmond
Vice-Chair: Janessa Vargas
Since 1973, the members of Organizacion Latinoamericano de Energía (OLADE) have been working to foster a relationship between developing and developed nations in Latin America through the facilitation of the energy market. However, as many countries have begun focusing on a transition to renewable and sustainable sources, OLADE is placed in a new position where it aims to assist in the shift while encouraging a disposition of synergy and partnership. Delegates, representing prominent Latin American policymakers voices and major voices in the Energy market and, need to work together to enable the transition, setting aside political rivalries during this tempestuous point in time.
