URUGUAY Candidacy OLADE - Executive Secretariat of - Triennial Management Plan
Selection Process of the Executive Secretary of OLADE Period 2020 - 2022

1       EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
OLADE's MISSION is “to contribute to the integration, sustainable development and energy security of the region,
advising and promoting cooperation and coordination among its Member Countries”.

OLADE's VISION is to become “the political Organization of technical support, through which its member states make
common efforts for regional and sub-regional energy integration.”

The official Candidacy of Uruguay for the Executive Secretariat of OLADE in the period 2020-2022 is based on two
fundamental pillars:

       Competencies and suitability of Eng. Alfonso Blanco Bonilla for the Executive Secretariat based on the
        achievements at the head of OLADE during the 2017-2019 period, the extensive and recognized work in the
        sector at the regional level linked to government bodies, international organizations and multilateral
        development banks.
       Support for the candidacy by the Oriental Republic of Uruguay.

                                                                  OLADE's Institutional, Financial and
                                                                  Organizational Pillar

                                                                  Strengthening of the Information Systems Pillar

                                                                  Regional Energy Complementarity, Integration
                                                                  and International Representation Pillar
       GENERAL OBJECTIVE for the
    2020-2022 Administration for the
      Executive Secretariat of OLADE
                                                                  Strengthening of Technical Capacities and
                                                                  Support to Sector Policies of the Member
                                                                  Countries Pillar

                                                                  Security of Energy Supply, Access and
                                                                  Sustainable Energy Pillar

The Triennial Management Plan has as a conceptual basis the Management Plan implemented in the 2017-2019 period,
strategic planning that has been positively valued and has provided the logical framework for the formalization in the
planning of the Organization and the monitoring of results.

 GENERAL OBJECTIVE for the 2020-2022 Administration for the Executive Secretariat of OLADE

    Continue the profound consolidation process of OLADE as the main technical reference organization in
    Latin America and the Caribbean in matters related to energy that works in the support and technical
    assistance of its Member Countries to ensure reliable, safe, sustainable and in economically convenient
    conditions provision and supply of energy; encouraging, supporting and coordinating processes aimed at
    regional energy complementarity and integration.

                                                                                                                         3
Selection Process of the Executive Secretary of OLADE Period 2020 - 2022

       To achieve the General Objective of the Period, 5 Strategic Pillars with the same level of importance are established:

        OLADE's Institutional, Financial and Organizational Pillar

            The process of continuous improvement will be deepened at the level of the functional and financing
            structure of OLADE which has allowed a financially sustainable operation and to fulfill the main duties and
            obligations set for the Organization and strictly comply with the objectives and expected results of the
            Triennial Management Plan. Continue the process of professionalization, technical improvement and high
            specialization of the Organization from a modern, dynamic and flexible organization generated from the
            strengthening of the technical staff.

        Strengthening of the Information Systems Pillar

            Expand the scope, contribution of indicators and analysis from the unique and complete Platform generated
            for Energy Information at the Latin American and Caribbean level, which integrates in a modern, dynamic,
            updated and transparent way all the relevant information of the energy system, through the work, synergy
            and support of OLADE with other agencies; understanding that the availability and quality of regional
            information is a key element for the regional and international positioning of OLADE.

        Regional Energy Complementarity, Integration and International Representation Pillar

            Take advantage of OLADE's strengths based on a trajectory of more than 45 years in regional integration
            and projecting the Organization in regional representation in the global scope of discussion fields,
            representing common regional interests and aligned with a clear objective of sustainable energy
            development of LAC. This, by promoting and supporting the processes of energy complementarity,
            integration and technical cooperation that enable the identification, formulation and execution of energy
            projects of common interest among the Member Countries.

        Strengthening of Technical Capacities and Support to Sector Policies of Member Countries Pillar

            Deepen the change achieved at the level of support in strengthening the technical capacities at the sector
            level of the Member Countries to support the development of energy planning and sectoral policies.

        Security of Energy Supply, Access and Sustainable Energy Pillar

           To deepen the scope of the actions undertaken to support the Member Countries in improving the
           conditions of access and security of energy supply under social, technical and economically convenient
           conditions, promoting the incorporation of clean energy sources and efficient technologies. This, according
           to national circumstances and the sustainable development goals of the countries. Work on the last mile to
           achieve universal access to energy and in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals.

2      PRESENTATION OF THE CANDIDACY - Letter from Eng. Alfonso Blanco Bonilla
                                            Meeting of Ministers of OLADE

                                              Council of Experts of OLADE

                                   Dear Ministers and National Coordinators of OLADE,

                                   In 2016 I was proud to be elected Executive Secretary of the Latin American and
                                   Caribbean Energy Organization. On that occasion, an important challenge was
                                   posed that was to bring the organism to the purpose of its creation in 1973 from its
                                   constitutive Agreement and thus re-found some key components of OLADE that
                                   would allow the organization to project itself according to its potential and
                                   contemplating the challenging juncture of the energy sector of our region.

                                 Even though the regional reality presented great difficulties for the fulfillment of the
                                 originally proposed objectives, there is a wide recognition in the fulfillment of the
                                 goals and the role that OLADE has in the region today. We can say with deep
                                 satisfaction that we have met the challenge and have taken the organization to a
                                 prominent position at the regional level. It is difficult to identify an area of discussion
                                 of energy issues in which OLADE is not present, a space in which the organization is
                                 not consulted or a dialogue platform from which we are excluded. The organization's
link with other global actors has deepened, we have strengthened the link with the private sector, we have
strengthened the institutional framework, we have developed a clear value proposal to the region and directly
supported our member countries in key areas.

Of course, there are still many things to work, to achieve, because a period of three years is not enough to implement
a vision and carry out a total transformation. A transformation that has been based on strengthening our common
points throughout the region, motivating the integration of our Latin America and the Caribbean as a WHOLE, under
strict compliance with the Lima Agreement and understanding that unity strengthens us and demolishes existing
asymmetries between our region and the rest of the world.

It is also the Lima Agreement that motivates the continuity of the processes that are valued as successful by enabling
the possibility of re-election for a period of three additional years, with the implicit message that a single period of
three years does not allow to implement a vision and observe tangible results.

Although we have made great progress, I also understand that the situation in the region is highly complex. Our
organization is at a point of unstable equilibrium in which proven experience, technical solvency and political
representativeness are required to dominate the uncertain near future.

Therefore, and with the results of a management behind that endorse my commitment and dedication to regional
integration and strict compliance with the Lima Agreement, I ask for your vote of confidence to support the Candidacy
presented by Uruguay to my re-election as Executive Secretary OLADE and continue to build and strengthen this
example of regional integration that is OLADE.

Cordially,

Eng. Alfonso Blanco

                                                                                                                               5
Selection Process of the Executive Secretary of OLADE Period 2020 - 2022

       3      PREAMBLE
       In recent years, profound weakening processes of many of the regional and global multilateral dialogue platforms have
       been observed; this has led to the fact that some of the multilateral content dialogue initiatives have been dismantled
       or their scope of action has been deactivated.

       The vision aimed at basing the relationship of nations based on, almost exclusively, bilateral ties and a strong focus of
       countries on internal issues, is part of this observed reality, which is also accompanied by complex scenarios in global
       geopolitics, with explicit commercial conflicts between geographical blocks and that already has negative effects on
       the regional economy. This, the result of a gradual weakening in the international prices of many of the tradable goods
       that sustain the economy of Latin America and the Caribbean and that are the cause of a noticeable slowdown of the
       economy of many of our nations.

       However, in this complex regional scenario that has been observed for some years, OLADE, in the same period, has
       managed to recover much of the lost space as a key player in regional integration and has made a notable contribution
       to strengthening the international positioning of the LAC energy sector globally. In this regard, facing this gradual
       weakening of multilateralism, OLADE has not only managed to stand, but has been strengthened in its technical
       actions and direct support to its Member Countries, all from the implementation of a strategy of institutional
       strengthening and operational efficiency that was originally proposed and defined in the Management Plan of the
       current administration.

       Even though the region has experienced economic crisis situations in recent years which have also affected the
       financial situation of the Organization, OLADE's support and technical work for all its Member Countries has remained
       unaffected.

       It is possible to argue with solid evidence that in the last administration OLADE has managed to expand its actions,
       improve its operational efficiency, respond to the needs of the LAC energy sector assertively, respond to the demands
       of its Member Countries and support the processes of change that it demands the new energy scenario for the region
       and that is conditioned by the energy transitions necessary to develop less carbon-intensive economies. Thus, in the
       three-year period most of the necessary structural changes have been made at the level of the Organization and the
       results of this institutional transformation have begun to be observed. However, three years is not enough to
       consolidate a vision. It requires the continuity of the strategies and ensure leadership so that this change is observed
       at the level of tangible final results and also requires an area of stability and political leadership that does not expose
       the organism to new external threats conditioned by the complex international geopolitical structure.

       The candidacy for the re-election of Eng. Alfonso Blanco to the Executive Secretariat of OLADE that Uruguay officially
       presents is not only a candidacy that is supported by the continuity of a process of transformation and institutional
       strengthening that has proven to be successful and is already initiated, but one that constitutes a proposal which
       ensures institutional growth and strengthening even in economic and geopolitical contexts that could be adverse and
       diverse for our region.

4        LEGAL AND INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK: LIMA AGREEMENT
The Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), created by the Convention of Lima in November 1973 is the
organization of COOPERATION, COORDINATION and ADVICE, whose main purpose is the regional energy
INTEGRATION, PROTECTION, CONSERVATION, RATIONAL utilization, MARKETING, and DEFENSE of the energy
resources Region.

The Lima Agreement is a declaration about the SOVEREIGNTY of LAC nations regarding decisions about the
development and use of the natural resources: “Member Countries in order to utilize fully and defend the natural
resources of each country and of the region as a whole, using such resources in the way in which each country -
exercising its indisputable sovereign rights - deems most suitable for its national interests; and for individual and
collective defense against all actions, sanctions or coercion that may be applied against any one of them, as a result of
any measures they may have adopted to safeguard and utilize such resources in implementing their plans for economic
and social development”.

The Lima Agreement is a document that supports regional agreements and promotes INTEGRATION and ENERGY
SECURITY initiatives in LAC: “Considering the possibility of use of natural resources, particularly energy, as a factor of
regional integration ... "; "… reaffirm the need of solidarity actions coordination by the Latin American Energy
Organization ... ";" ..., seeking to preserve natural resources, particularly energy sources".

The Lima Agreement is a document that is based on a modern statement on SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, including
LAC countries: “Recognizing the need for coordination of Latin American countries in order to develop their energy
resources and jointly solve problems related to its efficient and rational use, to ensure an independent economic and
social development”.

Selection Process of the Executive Secretary of OLADE Period 2020 - 2022

       The Executive Secretary of OLADE under the LIMA AGREEMENT has a three-year period with the possibility of a single
       re-election. The re-election is planned as a mechanism to allow the continuity of an administration, knowing that a
       period of three years is not enough to close a cycle. Likewise, the re-election allows reducing the operating costs of the
       organization, a critical aspect in financial illiquidity scenarios.

       6         ACHIEVEMENTS - 2017-2019
       6.1        Important results of the period:

       During the 2017-2019 administration, it has been achieved:

                 deeply expand the actions of the organism;
                   improve its operational efficiency;
                   respond to the specific needs of the LAC energy sector assertively and proactively;
                   respond to the specific claims of its Member Countries;
                 and, support the change processes demanded by the new energy scenario for the region to develop less
                 carbon-intensive economies.

       In the three-year period, most of the structural changes necessary at the Organization level have been made and the
       main results of this institutional transformation have begun to be observed.

              Strengthening of Technical Capacities and Support to Sector Policies of Member Countries Pillar
                            Latin America and the Caribbean are at a favorable juncture to deepen their Energy Transition and many countries in
                            the region have already started this process and it is necessary to extend their regional reach by taking advantage of
                            and exchanging the acquired experiences, strengthening the link between energy and climate, which offers clear
             MOTIVATION

                            opportunities and important challenges. Many countries still have deficiencies at the level of internal capacities to carry
                            out their processes of sector transformation and professionalization and on the other hand they will face new
                            unconventional energy resources that require a highly technical sector planning and clear rules at the level of
                            governance of those resources. In this regard, OLADE must continue playing a key role in supporting the development
                            of the necessary technical capacities (at public and private level), promoting the exchange of experiences and directly
                            supporting the development of sectoral policies. The region has highly specialized centers in energy issues. OLADE
                            must continue to take advantage of these capabilities by articulating networks and through the development of
                            strategic alliances and integration into existing networks and programs, both international and regional.
             OBJECTIVE

                            Deepen the change achieved at the level of support in strengthening the technical capacities at the sector level of the
