Chile publishes renewables auction plans for 5,250 gigawatt-hours

Energy Storage News:

Chile has published details of its latest power auction set to take place later this year that will contract 5,250GWh per annum for 15 years.

The country’s National Energy Commission (CNE) said it will carry out the tender to support the government’s decarbonisation efforts and the promotion of renewables and energy storage systems (ESS).

Domestic and international companies will be able to participate and bid for contracts to supply power from January 2027 to December 2041, CNE said.

According to the auction timetable, participants will have until 17 June to submit bids before winners are announced on 4 July.

Chile’s most recent power auction took place last September, was eight times oversubscribed and will see the country support 2GW of renewables and storage projects.
