Chile Power Report Q3 2015 - New Market Study Published

Published: Wed Jun 03 2015

Chile will remain one of the most attractive power markets in Latin America over the next 10 years due to its strong electricity consumption growth , driven by the country's expanding manufacturing sector and energy intensive mining industry. A stable business environment and liberalised electricity sector will continue to support investment in new power capacity, strengthening our upbeat forecast for growth in electricity generation . While investment in large-scale hydropower projects will be hampered by regulatory uncertainties , renewables and natural gas-fired power generation will experience considerable growth and create significant investment opportunities over our 10-year forecast period.

We forecast electricity consumption to grow by an annual average rate of 4.50% between 2015 and 2024, reaching a total of 105.70 terawatts hour (TWh) by the end of our 10-year forecast period.
