Convert italia attend to the 5th year of Cirec week, 17-20th october Santiago del Cile.
Cile is one of Latin America’s most well established renewable energy markets. A trailblazer in the development of solar and wind projects in the region, Chile has seen an incredible US$58 billion invested in renewable energy projects, and continues its progress with a current pipeline of 10.8GW of approved projects and a further 4GW awaiting qualification.
In 2016 we have seen new challenges emerge in the market, including curtailment, energy oversupply and a need for greater infrastructure development to connect the SIC and SING transmission networks.
The opportunities have evolved out of the shifting market landscape, including the development of PMGD projects, cross border energy supply, a potential secondary market for asset acquisition and the rise of O&M. Those with a long term plan for Chile continue to see the opportunity, and investors and developers like continue to build and finance projects with a view to ensuring they have a piece of the market.
Convert already active in Chile from 2015 with the supply of 100 MW of TRJ Solar Trakers for the construction of the Carrera Pinto solar Plant in the Acatama desert (commissioned on september 2016), could not miss this important event.
