Latin American countries have set a collective target of 70% renewable energy use by 2030, more than double what the European Union plans. Colombia presented the objective at the United Nations Climate Action Summit, where world leaders were asked to present concrete proposals to combat climate change.

The plan is intended to place Colombia and eight other countries in leadership positions before the UN summit on climate change to be held in Chile in December.

Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Colombia are part of the pact. Panama and Brazil are still weighing participation.

Around 70% of Colombia’s electricity already comes from hydroelectric power, but Colombia is focused on rapidly increasing the share of solar and wind energy up to 9% – equivalent to about 1,500 megawatts – by mid-2022.
