Chile’s energy sector garnered international headlines earlier this year with a successful electric auction. Chile’s auction was part of a highly competitive renewable energy wave sweeping the region from Mexico to Peru to Argentina that has drawn analysis in terms of the competitivity of renewables, but also the implications for system operation and grid management. In northern Chile, the question of incorporating renewables, particularly solar energy is a major point of discussion. Similarly, the discussions surrounding integration with Peru continue apace and prospects for electric interconnection remain real and must be considered by energy markets in both countries.

Join us for a webinar presentation led by Daniel Salazar Jaque, Director of Chile’s electric system operator CDEC-SING. He will provide an overview of Chile’s northern electric system and network, local interconnection and regional integration prospects from Chile’s vantage, as well as how to best to manage the increased deployment and insertion of renewable energy in northern Chile with an emphasis on solar energy developments.
The webinar will be held Thursday, November 3 at 11:00am San Diego (3:00 pm Santiago; GMT/UTC – 8 hours).  Salazar’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
