Abstract

The objective of this study is to classify the group of countries that contributes to the emissions of GHG gases in relation to their electric power generation. The data used for this classification are those reported by OLADE during the period from 2006 to 2013. The results show that they were organized in four (4) clusters, dividing them into efficient and inefficient levels. In the highest efficient level is Brazil, while in the lowest efficient level are Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Argentina and Mexico are in the highest inefficient level, while the rest of the Latin American countries are in the lowest inefficient level. The countries located at the efficient and inefficient levels were labeled as most emitting countries and least emitting countries.
