The Chilean electricity market yields high possibilities for growth. The power generation segment is fueled by a consistent electricity demand closely related to Chile's economic expansion, which is also offering new business opportunities. On the other hand, power transmission and distribution have reduced profits seen in 2010 and become less competitive. Moreover, Chile’s electricity matrix dependence on fossil fuels and hydro resources represents a challenge that has to be faced both by the government and private companies. Non-conventional renewable energy represents an efficient tool to address growing electricity demand.
