Through this Report, the Latin American Energy Organization seeks to analyze the economic importance of the different commercial transactions associated with the use of electricity and fuels in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. In turn, this information seeks to enable the countries of the region to identify opportunities and potentials for energy exchange to benefit their economic and regional scenarios. Different institutions from the energy sector, which are in charge of establishing energy prices in the member countries of the organization, participated in the development of this report. For this, OLADE considered the use of the methodological model of the International Energy Agency – IEA, for the collection of information, which considers the national currency of each country, and allows obtaining the final price of energy, thus reflecting the unit price effectively paid by consumers in the region with a determined periodicity. The information collected also considers the different taxes established by each country for each of its types of energy for the different consumption sectors.
