• Renewable Energy in Chile: Barriers and the Role of Public

    Context and Research QuestionDrivers of Renewable EnergiesBarriers to Renewable EnergiesPolicy RecommendationsAuthor’S BiographyChile imports around 70 percent of its primary energy supply, due to having limited domestic energy resources.[i] However, since 2010, growth in Chile has had high annual rates of 5 to 6 percent, and the demand for electricity to feed this growth continues to rise at an annual rate of 6 to 7 percent.[ii] With a relatively high energy intensity concerning electricity (Chile is at 0.42 compared to the OECD average of 0.27), Chile requires high levels of electricity input to produce an increase in its GDP, revealing a low energy efficiency of its economy (increasing the GDP by 1 unit requires an almost 1.5 unit increase in the electricity supplied).[iii]To feed Chile’s future development, the country faces the challenge of designing suitable energy polices to safeguard the country’s national autonomy, secure its economic growth, and maintain its living standards. Energy crises in recent years—the latest being in 2008, when Argentina unilaterally cut off gas lines to Chile—have increase...

    Economic BenefitsSocial BenefitsEnvironmental BenefitsA region, province or state (more generally an administrative unit) may benefit from exploiting and using RES through: 1. federal and state subsidies 2. lower energy bills 3. increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) 4. increase in real-estate value 5. increase in RES supplier revenues 6. decrease in dependency on energy imports 7. increase in security of energy supply 8. economic value of the entire supply chain involved in RES. The level of subsidies will determine RES investments and development. Federal and state subsidies can be simply mapped and do not need a derived parameter as an indicator (Figure 1). Lower energy bills resulting from use of RES can be indicated by comparison with average electricity and natural-gas prices across an administrative unit. Increase in FDI can be quantified either as a percentage of contribution of RES to the total FDI on all energy sources, and as a percentage of contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP).
