South American Energy Network Integration: Mission Possible?

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter highlights regional arrangements in South America that advance energy integration in the region. Three significant multi-state agreements have the potential to provide the framework for moving energy from source to end user in South American nations. These are the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR), and the Community of Andean Nations (CAN). Can those regional agreements supply an adequate legal platform for multinational energy networks to develop and operate successfully in South America? What are their strengths and weaknesses? These are the questions that the chapter attempts to answer.
