In this alliance, Canada's Advanced Energy Center will establish with Celsia Centroamérica their perspectives on (i) the development of energy storage in Latin America; And (ii) identify and analyze the technological, regulatory, economic and environmental factors that affect the viability of projects in these markets.

In addition, they plan that the results of the study be oriented to technical aspects and economic and regulatory mechanisms that make viable the technology in the geography of operation of Celsia Central America, with the purpose of finding applicable solutions in the interconnected systems to solve the supply of residential, industrial and local government customers.
