In the last decade, Latin America has suffered radical changes in energy issues, such that many of its energy sources (fossil fuels) have been almost completely displaced. Within the same continent, countries have advanced in the renewable energy revolution at different steps, due to factors such as political instability, economic problems or lack of private investment. In 2021, in the Latin American and Caribbean region, the country with the highest installed capacity for wind energy generation was Brazil with 21,161 megawatts. Likewise, Mexico was the second country with the highest wind energy capacity in the region with 7,692 megawatts.

(Source: Statista, 2021) Brazil As we have already seen, Brazil is positioned in the top 10 countries with the highest wind energy generation, being the only Latin American country on this list, with a capacity of more than 20 GW. Furthermore, it is estimated that by 2025, it will be able to generate 70% of the installed wind capacity in Latin America. One of its great advantages, in addition to the favorable geographical position, is that large electric turbine manufacturers, such as GE and Alstom, will launch the electric turbine manufacturing and assembly supply chain in the region.

Brazil remains the most attractive market for clean energy investments, which increased by 27% compared to 2020, again largely thanks to the small-scale solar sector. Of all investments in renewables in the region, 65% were concentrated in Brazil. Mexico Mexico is the second Latin American country in the use of wind energy to produce clean electricity, with a total of 7 GW operational. In 2020, Mexico was not as lucky as its neighboring countries, as a combination of regulatory changes and economic crisis posed an obstacle to the expansion of wind and solar energy, mainly as a result of the proposal of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).
