The general objective of this study is to provide an overview of fossil-fuel-based electric power technologies other than coal-fired technologies (coal-fired technologies are the subject of a specific guideline that has already been adopted by the IDB) and an assessment of the relevance of these technologies in the future power generation mix in Latin America and the Caribbean resulting from new generation and retrofit investment in which the IDB may participate.
