K&M has been engaged a European-based private equity firm to analyze renewable (and possibly gas) energy investment opportunities in six Latin American countries. For the first phase of the engagement, K&M analyzed each country’s energy sector in terms of market fundamentals, market design and regulation, access to PPAs, risk, level of competition, and return dynamics, and then evaluated each market based on the client’s investment criteria. K&M then presented its market conclusions and recommendations to the client. For the second part of the engagement, K&M performed a deeper-dive assessment of the two countries with the highest investment potential for the client and designed potential entry strategies. This phase also included identification of particular project investment opportunities consistent with the client’s criteria. The conclusions were presented to the client.
