Nuclear Power

Chile has no nuclear power plants and has not taken any decision regarding the development of a nuclear power program. However, Chile has a strong background in other nuclear applications.

Hydro Power

There is currently a total of 7,055 MW of installed hydropower capacity in Chile. The majority is concentrated in the Maule and Bío Bío regions, where the plants export production to Santiago. The National Energy Strategy (ENE) has targets for 45-48 percent of electricity generation to be sourced from hydropower by 2024. The strategy also estimates that Chile’s hydro energy potential could easily exceed 12.5 GW.

Wind Power

The installed wind power generation capacity in Chile amounted to almost 2.4 gigawatts in March 2021. This represents an increase of over 47 percent in comparison to the same month of the previous year, when the installed capacity in the country totaled 1.62 gigawatts.

Solar Power

In 2018 Chile produced about 7% of its electricity from solar power.  As of year-end, it had 2137 MW of solar PV capacity. In July 2020 installed solar capacity had risen to 3104 MW, with another 2801 MW under construction.
