In the last decade, Chile has established itself as a leader in the region in terms of renewable energies thanks to the generous presence of natural resources throughout its territory and its increasingly better use from the political decision of bet on sustainable development and the transformation of its energy matrix in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
Chile has the highest solar radiation in the world, strong winds from north to south to develop wind energy, a huge potential for marine energy on its coasts, great capacity to develop biogas and geothermal resources along the mountain range. In addition, in recent years various strategic public policies have been adopted to promote an efficient and transparent regulatory framework and a safe and attractive investment scenario. According to the Climatoscope study, prepared by Bloomberg New Energy Finance and the Inter-American Development Bank, in 2018 Chile ranked No. 1 among 103 countries in terms of government policies implemented and investment in non-conventional renewable energies. For its part, the RISE report (Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy) 2017, prepared by the World Bank, which measures the efficiency of sustainable energy policies among all the countries of the world, placed Chile in the first place in South America (with 77/100 points) and second in Latin America behind Mexico (79/100).
Our route is clear: we must take advantage of the excellent levels of competitiveness shown by renewable energies to help build this new Chile “. In December 2019 Chile will host the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change COP25. It is the largest and most important international meeting to discuss and advance global policies that ensure the sustainability of our habitat. Chile hopes to share its experiences in the field of renewable energy and debate with leaders from around the world about the most efficient and effective way to deliver a sustainable planet to new generations.
