The public policies (PP) established by Latin American governments in the energy supply sector are determining factors in the control of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. The objective of this research is to determine which are the PPs of the energy supply sector adopted in Latin America, as well as to link the PPs used in the region to the Sustainable Development Energy Indicators (SDI). The methodology used has the following characteristics: the source of data collection is documentary and the population addressed are Latin American countries. The results show that the PPs most frequently present among the countries are the "increased participation of renewable energies", "promotion and increase of energy eﬁciencia" and "diversiﬁcación of the energy matrix". Subsequently, the PPs were linked to the IEDS, which allows an association of both, being necessary for analysis or determination of eﬁciencias in subsequent research. Among the conclusions is that most Latin American countries are moving forward or at least making attempts to generate "green energy", which contributes to the control of GHG emissions from important sector.
