Under the motto “Redesigning energy for people and planet“, the most prestigious global event on energy in the world closed, in which Uruguay was represented by a delegation from ANCAP, which participated in various panels where modern energy, the energy trilemma and the transition in Latin America were debated.

The president of ANCAP, Alejandro Stipanicicspeaking in Rotterdam, emphasized “the need to avoid polarization in opinions on the energy industry, adopt a neutral position with respect to all available technologies to opt at all times for those that are most convenient to ensure energy supply in an equitable and sustainable manner”.

WORLD FIRST LEVEL PANEL

The leader illustrated the defense of technological neutrality with the contribution of decisions at the La Teja Refinery. In that sense, he indicated that “The decision to replace the burning of fuel oil for boilers and ovens with natural gas, alone contributes to the reduction of emissions equivalent to the incorporation of 45,000 electric vehicles

Sources from the state oil entity confirmed to Surtidores that the president of ANCAP shared the panel with the founder of a company that offers innovative technology to bring electricity to 1,000 poor homes in Nigeria; with a member of the Future Energy Leaders program who participated in projects related to fixed and floating offshore wind energy for hydrogen production in Norway, Taiwan and Korea; the executive director of programs of the European Climate Foundation and the manager of International Affairs of the Frainhofer Institute, while the panel was moderated by the secretary general of the South African Energy Association.

RECORD PRODUCTION: 700,000 TONS OF ETHANOL

Maira Moralesfrom the Refinery Planning management, highlighted the definition of the Hydrogen Route of Uruguay that presents an encouraging panorama to transform the country into a net exporter of energy and the various projects that ANCAP leads within its framework, “such as the one related to the production of 700,000 tons of methanol for the production of e-gasoline or that of 200,000 tons of SAF and the next tender for offshore blocks for the installation of wind farms to produce large-scale hydrogen for export” he pointed.

Elsewhere, during the event, the professional emphasized the country’s institutional commitment to the energy transition reflected in the successful issuance of debt bonds linked to environmental objectives, with penalties for non-compliance with goals and awards for better performance.

ANCAP TOWARDS THE FUTURE: SUSTAINABLE MOLECULES

While, Santiago FerroANCAP’s Energy Transition Manager, presented in Rotterdam the portfolio of projects with which ANCAP leads the second phase of the energy transition, which involve the production of sustainable molecules from renewable energy and the decarbonization of current operations.
