Colombia

Colombia has a strong revenue of energy sources and the country is greatly relying on installed hydropower (65 per cent of annual consumption), which provides cost effective electricity. The country has great potential for renewable energy production out of solar, wind and biomass. Colombia launched the Energy Plan 2050 in 2016, which aims to diversify the country’s energy resources and ensure a reliable energy supply. The Plan also aims to include wind power plants, solar PV and geothermal energy generation in the country's electric mix. Dutch innovations and knowhow can assist Colombian partners to move forward in the energy transition. Dutch companies and knowledge institutes offer innovative solutions for Colmbian energy niches such as sustainable mobility, wind, biomass, oil & gas, geothermal and tidal. The Netherlands diplomatic network in Colombia is eager to support you. If you have any queries related to the energy sector, please contact us at: bog-ea@minbuza.nl
