A Norwegian renewable energy delegation took part in The Second Energy Week - Latin America and the Caribbean in Medellin, Colombia, in the last week of November 2017.  

We, in cooperation with International Centre for Hydropower (ICH), invited Norwegian hydropower companies to attend the international ICH conference " Enhancing Sustainability in Hydropower Development " from the 27th to the 29th of November. The ICH conference was one of the official events of The Second Energy Week Latin America and the Caribbean. Another official event was the  FISE - Feria Internacional del Sector Eléctrico  exhibition from the 29th to the 1st of December where we had a Norwegian pavilion with the companies DynaVec, Norconsult, Rainpower, Arvakr Energy and ICH.

 On the 29th of November, the energy week was dedicated to Colombia-Norway relations; At the Colombia - Norway Energy Business Meeting, we organised a session that focused on off-grid solar power and LNG solutions. ICH organised a parallel session on hydropower.
On the 1st of December, we also invited the FISE attendees to a "charla técninca" - a session on rehabilitation of hydropower plants with DynaVec, Norconsult and Rainpower as speakers.
