U.S. Renewables and Efficiency Cooperation

Chile’s Renewable Energy Center


Worked with the Ministry of Energy of Chile to support the
development of its Renewable Energy Center.


Solar Power


Supported Chile in designing, issuing, and evaluating responses
to a request for proposals (RFP) for a solar thermal power plant


in the Atacama Desert.


Geothermal Technical Cooperation


Worked in partnership to evaluate Chile’s geothermal energy
programs and to provide technical support for geothermal
training and industry development.


Smart Grid


Supported a Smart Grid Technologies Reverse Trade Mission to
the United States by Chilean experts.
