Colombia's generation sector is very competitive with a mix of private and government players. Power generation depends primarily on hydroelectricity. Backup thermal capacity is needed to reduce the risk of seasonal power scarcity during periods of low reservoir levels caused by El Niño, as the ones expected in Q4 2014 and Q1 2015. Colombia's electricity grid is currently connected to those of Venezuela and Ecuador, and Panama starting in 2018.
