“The interest in renewable energy-specific investments in the Caribbean and Latin America has grown considerably in the past few years,” said Ben Moody, President and CEO of Pan American Finance. “The investments made in 2015 demonstrate that countries in the Caribbean Basin are favoring a transition towards cleaner energy; we have identified some attractive areas of opportunities in the region, led by Panama and Guatemala, but also including potential future opportunities in Cuba, which has only recently started to turn to foreign investors to boost renewable energy investment.”
