8th Annual World Infrastructure & Energy Summit
Barcelona, Spain, September 28, 2017

Almar Water Solutions and its Chief Financial Officer, Felipe Guinea, participated in the 8th Annual World Infrastructure & Energy Summit (WIES). The event was held at the Fira Center in Barcelona, establishing itself as the world’s largest event to identify new projects in the infrastructure market and discover investment and financing opportunities.  Felipe moderated a session titled “A global perspective: Confronting the critical investment gap in water infrastructure”, where the following questions were analyzed:

  • Prioritizing investment in water: What fields require an increased focus on development: supply, water treatment or desalination?
  • Is the PPP model the best framework for mobilizing joint investment in water infrastructure by the public and private sectors? How might this vary in different parts of the world?
  • How can we integrate and take advantage of the analytical advantages of ‘smart’ technology in the development of water infrastructure?

During the session, Felipe discussed how the sector is a safe bet for both private and public investment and explained how the BOT or PPP schemes represent effective tools for project financing, and a real solution in the fight against the water shortages that many areas of the world are experiencing.
