Abstract

A proposed index has been constructed to compare different nations' state of regulation and policies regarding the promotion of distributed generation. The index, called DGLI, takes into account technical, environmental and economical issues. An application of the methodology to the nations of Latin America and the Caribbean indicates that the countries with a higher DGLI are in Central America.
