By 2010, 67% of the electricity generated in Colombia was hydraulic and 28% by fossil fuels. The use of these fuels is associated CO2e emissions, contributing to climate change. On the other hand, climatic events such as “El Niño” and “La Niña” affect the availability of reservoirs and make the Colombian electricity mix variable. The Smart Grid will be in the future an application to improve the efficiency of the Colombian electrical system, and reduce consumption of fossil fuels and therefore reduce carbon emissions.
