Klarzen, American company operating in Colombia since 2017, through the development of technology and clean energy solutions, has been increasing its presence in Latin America. The company has pioneered the conversion of oil and gas fields into sustainable green energy centers and has also created significant operational cost savings.

07 de noviembre 2023-. Klarzen built and operates a 10 MWp solar energy farm in the department of Casanare, which is the largest solar energy system in the private oil and gas sector in Latin America.

According with the U.S. Department of Energy, the global solar power market has a potential of US$ 386 billion in 2022. A major growth factor behind the surge of green hydrogen has been the declining costs of renewable energy which is the major input in the production process. In the year 2022, energy storage with lithium technology is also expected to grow, owing to its potential long-duration and seasonal storage within stable grid connections. Solar power is more affordable, accessible, and prevalent in the United States than ever before. From just 0.34 GW in 2008, U.S. solar power capacity has grown to an estimated 97.2 gigawatts (GW) today. This is enough to power the equivalent of 18 million average American homes.

Klarzen experience extends far beyond the oil and gas fields. Another success case is Ingredion, a company with a long history in the country’s agro-industrial, which contracted Klarzen for the installation of a modern system of 834 KWp photovoltaic solar panels that helps reduce more than 15,000 tons of CO₂ with the equivalent to 18,300 trees planted over the course of 25 years.

The Valle del Cauca firm Hacienda Lucerna, which exports panela, dairy and organic sugar, also built a system of 216 photovoltaic solar panels with a capacity of 130 KWp. This will help reduce more than 3,000 tons of CO₂, which is equivalent to planting 5,700 trees. planted over the next 25 years.

According with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), The solar industry has invested US $12,257.25 million in Florida, including US $2,375.86 million in 2021. However, Florida’s solar policies have lagged other states: it has no renewable portfolio standard and does not allow power purchase agreements, two policies that have driven investments in solar in other states. However, thanks to utility investments in clean energy and other recent developments, significant growth is on the horizon.

Among major utilities, Duke Energy Progress was #1 for the third year in a row in terms of solar watts per customers, with more than double #2 Dominion Energy SC. That said, before this year, Duke Energy had more than half of the installed solar in the Southeast, and that changed in 2019 as other utilities gained on it.
