Bachelet said: “Chile is a mature country, with capacity to confront great challenges and meet the challenges we can and make the necessary changes so that the country can emerge stronger. As a government we must act … and do what it takes to have a better future tomorrow today.”

The inception of Energy 2050 stands as the result of a partnership between President Bachelet and the Energy Agenda — launched in May 2014 in order to develop a shared vision for the future development of the renewable-energy market.
