Dear Blue Blue,

By coincidence last week just as Smart Villages was holding our opening workshop for the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico region, we received an impassioned plea from Julio Eisman of Fundación ACCIONA Microenergía. Systematically I look for news in the Americas section of your newsletter but I do not find any new about off grid electrification concerning Latin America. All the news in Americas section end in USA. Could be really that the real Americas is the Dark Region? That nearly 30 million Latin Americans without electricity do not count, they are invisible? Rest assured Julio they do count. We have already held several workshops in the region - Paraguay, Bolivia, Ecuador and now Dominican Republic - and will do our best to keep you and our other readers updated on them and other relevant news.

The election of Donald Trump in the United States and the installation of a team at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy who are climate change skeptics stands in the face of not only established science, but also of an unambiguous record of data that clean energy projects simply generate more jobs than those in the fossil fuel sector (Wei et al, 2010).

A Smarter Grid Above The Clouds
Smart grids bring improved efficiency and reliability to the centralized energy delivery system that has been in existence for more than 100 years. The electric grid has relied on burning fossil fuels, but is now slowly shifting to renewable energy sources.
