Why Chile

Chile is one of the fastest growing and strongest markets for solar energy technologies. According to the Global Climate Scope ranking, Chile is the most attractive emerging market for clean energy technologies. In 2013, Chile passed a law mandating that 20% of its energy come from renewable sources by 2025, which has led to a surge in renewable energy projects. In 2018, Chile set a new target to increase renewables to 70% by 2050. Since 2018 Chile has already been producing 18% of its electricity from renewable energy sources, excluding big hydro-electric plants. Chile has enormous potential for renewable energy development, with some of the best solar energy resources in the world.

According to the Bloomberg New Energy Finance 2H 2018 LCOE Update released recently, Chile has the lowest tracking PV LCOE (Levelized Cost of Electricity) at $30/MWh. Chile has also been praised by the IEA in its 2018 report “Energy Policies Beyond IEA Countries: Chile 2018 Review”, highlighting the country’s development as a leading destination for solar and wind developers thanks to supportive legislation that encourages investment. Today, Chile is the second largest market for renewable energies in Latin America.

Chile is also home to several massive renewable energy projects that are powering Chilean Mines. The SWC 2019 will offer a study tour to view some of these projects in the Atacama Desert north of Santiago. 

Chile is gearing up to be a leader in the renewable energy transformation. Don’t miss your opportunity to take part in this land mark event to present your company, products and services, connect with international, regional and local solar energy leaders.
