Marcelo Tokman Presentation

Upon assuming office in early 2014, Chilean president Michele Bachelet set forth a series of key markers for her administration’s efforts to confront challenges in the nation’s energy sector. Launched in May 2014, the government’s energy agenda featured  priorities such as increasing competition, lowering energy prices, defining the role of the state, and interconnection of the country’s two power markets (SING and SIC) all which were at the heart of new policies and laws proffered by her government. President Bachelet also made clear that her government would develop a long-term strategy for Chile’s energy sector. The Energy 2050 initiative and its corresponding roadmap is set to be launched in the second half of 2015.

This executive roundtable is timed to coincide with the one year mark of the energy agenda and will include an assessment of the progress made to date and a discussion of policy issues still pending. Panels will focus on the nation’s first energy efficiency law and electric interconnection, as well as legislation aimed at managing the relationship between the energy sector and communities and issues of compensation. Renewed opportunities for regional integration will also be debated as a part of the roundtable.
