Abstract: U.S. President Barack Obama last year announced the largest single energy grid modernization investment in the country's history, valued at some $8 billion. Other nations have similarly prioritized large-scale investments to modernize energy infrastructure by incorporating information and communication technologies to create a "smart grid" that uses two-way communications to better coordinate supply and demand, reduce costs and enhance efficiency. How advanced is the build-out of smart grids in Latin America and the Caribbean? What challenges do smart grids face in the region and how do they factor into the overall context of the energy sector? How will regional integration factor into the development of more energy efficient infrastructure?
