Presently, Chile is among the first of the Latin American countries to implement a mixed energy model which includes renewable energy.

Act 20257, effective January 1, 2010, electric utilities with an installed capacity of over 200MW must obtain part of the energy they sell to customers from renewable energy resources – making up about 37% of Chile’s electricity generation. This Act has set a target of 5% renewable energy generation by 2014, to gradually rise to 10% by 2024.

Non-compliance earns a fine of US$25 per MWh, which then increases if a plant repeatedly fails to fulfil its obligations.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
