A Latin American hub

We are a natural laboratory for the energy of the future. We have a unique environment accompanied by state-of-the-art policies for the development of new sustainable energy technologies.

Privileged Environment. We have the best conditions for solar energy production in the world; including 4 thousand hours of sunshine per year in our northern regions and the highest levels of solar radiation found anywhere on the planet.

Optimal wind energy potential and operative wind farms may be found all over Chile (Antofagasta, Coquimbo, Biobío, Los Lagos and Magallanes).

Our coastline extends over 4,000 kilometers and provides the perfect conditions to develop marine energy.

The rivers of the center and south of the country provide hydroelectric potential equivalent to 11 GW. The Andes mountain range contains important geothermal energy reserves while Chile’s densely forested southern regions are a source for biomass fuel.

Cutting-Edge. We are a Clean Energy Leader. Public and private energy sector investments focus on diversifying the generation matrix. Our goal is to become a carbon neutral country by 2050, as well as to be known as the world’s future energy laboratory.
