inodú publishes an article which reviews Chile's decarbonization efforts in electricity sector

August 23, 2019


The article is focused on reviewing the studies and process conducted by the decarbonization working group, contextualizing the role of coal generation in Chile, reviewing the agreements signed between generation companies & the government, presenting the conversion & retirement alternatives, and describing the social & environmental challenges with reconversion or retirement of coal facilities. Finally, the article highlights some of the lessons learned from the process and future work which could be addressed.

Although there is still work to do, the agreements recently signed are a positive step forward in which companies committed to completely stop the operations of coal facilities by 2040 and concrete commitments were made to initially retire a fifth of the existing installed capacity in the next five years.
