The purpose of this publication is to describe the operation of the Chilean electricity market with respect to the integration and operation of Non-Conventional Renewable Energy (NCRE). A description and comprehensive analysis of the structure and model of the Chilean electricity market, its legal and regulatory foundations, associated obligations, business opportunities and operational aspects necessary for the development and integration of NCRE projects are presented. The publication aims to serve as a conceptual basis and guide for investors, project developers and other stakeholders, both national and foreign, who do not necessarily have detailed and up-to-date knowledge of the Chilean electricity market. This document is especially important in the current context of structural changes in the Chilean electricity market.
This publication was prepared at the request of the project "Promotion of Solar Energy in Chile", commissioned by the German Ministry of Environment (BMU) and implemented by the Ministry of Energy and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, within the framework of an intergovernmental cooperation agreement between the Chilean and German administrations.
