  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy is responsible for energy policy and planning.

    The National Energy Commission (CNE, Comisión Nacional de Energía), acts as the technical body of the Ministry of Energy and is in charge of controlling prices in the regulated sector of the electricity market. It also responsible for implementing the energy efficiency and renewable policies.

  • Energy Companies


    Empresa Nacional del Petroleo (ENAP) is a public holding involved in all the sector's activities through its subsidiaries: ENAP Magallanes for oil exploration and production; ENAP Refinerías for oil refining and storage; Sipetrol for the activities abroad (Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Iran and Egypt); and Petro Servicio Corp. for oil engineering and related services.

  • Energy Supply


    Chile's fossil fuel resources are scarce: their reserves are estimated at 25 Mt for oil, 4 bcm for gas and 1.2 Gt for coal (end of 2018). However, Chile has a large hydroelectric and geothermal potential (26 and 16 GW, respectively). Moreover, the solar radiation level in the northern part of the country is among the highest in the world.

  • Energy Prices


    The open market (customers over 500 kW) has been liberalised and accounts for 85% of total sales. On the regulated market, the price of electricity is determined according to the price set by the National Energy Commission (node price), which is the price paid by distributors. That price, which differs according to the region, is linked to the foreseen future marginal cost and is revised ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is around 2.2 toe. The country's electricity consumption per capita is around 4 000 kWh.

    Total energy consumption increased by 3.1%/year between 2014 and 2018, reaching 39 Mtoe. It is dominated by oil, with 41% in 2018. The share of gas decreased since its peak of 15% in 2009 to 10% in 2014; it has been increasing slowly since then (13% in 2018). Coal, ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    Chile's Energy Roadmap until 2050 targets a 70% share of renewables in electricity production (mainly solar and wind) and a shift from private to public transportation which, according to the plan, should be low or non-carbon-emitting by 2050. New environmental standards, the promotion of energy efficiency and the eradication of energy poverty are also considered in the ...
