RURAL ELECTRIFICATION IN CHILE

Chile and the United States are to co-operate on using US renewables technology for rural electrification in Chile. Under a memorandum of co-operation with the Chilean National Energy Commission, the US Department of Energy is providing $500,000 and Chile is providing $1 million to develop renewables pilot projects in rural areas. The accord also outlines support for joint ventures, innovative financing, training, and technical assistance and is expected to lead to wind, wind-solar, wind-diesel and micro-hydro. The agreement evolved from discussions between officials from Chile and the American Wind Energy Association that were boosted by the Renewable Energy for the Americas conference last year in Puerto Rico.
