Decarbonisation of the Chilean energy sector
As of: April 2020
Objective and activities
The project to decarbonise the Chilean energy sector will further consolidate in particular the expansion of variable renewable energies (e.g. solar energy, wind power). This will be accompanied by support for innovative technologies and approaches such as "green" hydrogen for renewable energy system integration and sector coupling. To this end, innovative projects will be identified and prepared for financing. The project builds on the positive experience of the previous project “Promotion of solar energy in Chile with a Focus on Concentrated Solar Technology CSP and Large PV", which contributed significantly to the dynamic development of renewable energies in Chile from 2014 to 2019. The decarbonisation of the Chilean energy sector will be promoted by the project with the introduction of market-based climate protection instruments in addition to support for coal withdrawal. To this end, the Chilean government will be advised on the implementation of its ambitious and coherent agenda in the climate and energy sector.
