The utilities sector offers the largest business opportunity in Latin America for applying smart technologies. However, the lack of regulation and timeframes for making infrastructure smarter is slowing adoption, Jo Arne Lindstad, VP of Ericsson’s industry and society division for Latin America, told BNamericas.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona this week, Lindstad said the Swedish company has honed its focus on three core areas to develop smart solutions in the region: smart cities (which consist of transport and public safety), utilities and financial services.

Dynamic spectrum access techniques that improve spectrum utilization would help alleviate the spectrum crunch, enable the Internet of Things and close the digital divide in Latin America. This was the message given at last week’s ANE Annual Spectrum Conference on Internet of Things in Bogota by Prof. H Nwana, Executive Director of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance, the global organisation advocating for law and regulations that will lead to more efficient and effective spectrum utilisation.

Nwana told his audience that dynamic spectrum policy thinking is moving up the agenda for regulators and policy makers as new areas like Internet of Things emerge, and that the global dynamic spectrum access movement is growing. He noted that this is evidenced by the growing Alliance membership and more countries looking to implement dynamic spectrum access regulations in 2015, to add to the United States, Singapore and Finland. This would include the UK, South Africa and Malawi. There are also a growing number of geographical database-based TV White Space pilots underway, including trials in North America, Europe, South Africa, Africa, Asia and even Latin America (the first being in Uruguay).

Brazil’s ambitious plan to auction 3.5 GW of photovoltaic (PV) capacity through 2018 is expected to catalyze solar growth in Latin America, according to IHS Technology. The Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency has announced a so-called reserve capacity auction to contract new power-generation capacity to hedge against unexpected drops in power supply — for example, low hydroelectric power levels during drought years.
