Webinar: Argentina’s YPF and the Energy Transition

 

PRESENTATION


As the transformation of the global energy sector unfolds, companies throughout Latin America are grappling with the question of how they will evolve operationally, financially, and strategically as the world shifts its energy focus.

YPF has embraced the challenge of the energy transition and created a strategy of “Energy Transition’ Readiness” based upon the G20-B20 Energy, Resource Efficiency and Sustainability Recommendations, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement. Specifically, the company is developing actions to reduce the total intensity of carbon emissions associated with operations, including technological developments focused on methane emissions, gas storage, specifically enhancing energy efficiency across the value chain and sustainability of the company overall.

Join us for a webinar and discussion with Dr. Elena Morettini, Geoscience Advisor & B20 Energy Officer at YPF. Dr. Morettini will share further insights from YPF’s experience and vision on energy transitions preparing for new ways of producing, distributing and using energy, as well as other technological developments at the company.

The webinar will be held Wednesday, November 6 at 10:00am San Diego (3:00 pm Buenos Aires time; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). Dr. Morettini’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience

Welcome to the November edition of Energy Panorama. This month we continued our discussion of lithium and critical minerals with a panel at the Institute of the Americas in La Jolla and presentation by Emily Hersh. See presentation and video below.

Mexico’s evolving energy sector and outlook for renewables were the focus of our podcast series and an essay in World Politics Review. We also weighed in on changes in Ecuador’s ministry of energy and outlook for the nation’s oil sector as part of the Inter-American Dialogue’s Energy Advisor.

We are pleased to share the short highlight video and photo gallery from our Roundtable in Bogota and discussion of the future of Colombia’s oil and gas sector; later this month we’ll publish reports based upon the discussions.

Our webinar series focused on Argentina and discussion with YPF on their energy transition strategies and investment with Elena Morettini, Geoscience Advisor & B20 Energy Officer at YPF.

On December 5, our webinar series will discuss the political developments in the Southern Cone and implications for the near-term function and outlook for the region’s gas market.

Next week is our annual collaboration in Washington, DC with the Inter-American Dialogue and discussion of the energy sector in the Western Hemisphere. This year’s event set for December 11 will assess Mexico’s energy sector as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador marks one year in office.

Welcome to the October edition of Energy Panorama. We just returned from Bogota where we hosted two exciting programs – a Roundtable discussion with four high-level panels that assessed the future of Colombia’s oil and gas sector and two private roundtable sessions focused on social license to operate issues and energy transition. Stay tuned for our reports based upon the discussions.

We are also pleased to share our latest report together with IPD Latin America derived from discussions from the inaugural Madrid Energy Conference:  Politics, Regulation, and NOCs: The Gatekeepers of Latin America’s Energy Future Be sure to mark your calendar to join us on September 16-18, 2020 for the second annual Madrid Energy Conference.

During the Third Annual Latin American Energy Conference hosted by the Inter-American Dialogue, Energy & Sustainability Vice President Jeremy Martin shared insights on the current state of the natural gas market in Argentina and thoughts on the election and change in government. See panel video below.

Energy Transition Initiative Director Cecilia Aguillon weighed in on the question of will Latin America and the Caribbean meet its ambitious renewable energy target by 2030 for the Dialogue’s Energy Advisor. Cecilia also spoke at a unique event in Mexico convened by the Government of the State of Guanajuato and German aid agency KAS to consider the role of sub-sovereign efforts to drive energy and climate policy in Mexico. She shared insights from States in the US and municipalities in California on sub-sovereign climate and energy policies, particularly with regards to deployment of renewable energy.

Energy Policy Associate Jacqueline Sanchez continued her work on energy transition issues and was invited to by the Government of Chile to participate in an APEC workshop focused on decentralized energy and distributed energy resource solutions.

On November 6, our webinar series turns to Argentina and discussion with YPF on their energy transition strategies and investment plans featuring Elena Morettini, Geoscience Advisor & B20 Energy Officer at YPF.

In December, we return to Washington, DC for our annual collaboration with the Inter-American Dialogue and discussion of the energy sector in the Western Hemisphere. This year’s event will assess Mexico’s energy sector as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador marks one year in office. We look forward to seeing you there.
