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 operating wind farms may be found in the regions of Antofagasta, Coquimbo, Biobío, and Los Lagos.

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. Energy sector investments focus on diversifying the generation matrix. Our goal is to achieve a 70% sustainable energy matrix by 2050. Chile is set to become the world’s future energy laboratory.

In Chile, opportunities in the energy sector not only exist in a renewable generation but also in electric transmission. Our country is focused on fostering a more robust and secure transmission system. For this purpose, international public tenders are called, periodically, in which actors from different countries could participate.
