Chile Power Market Outlook to 2030, Update 2017 - Market Trends, Regulations, and Competitive Landscape


Chile has one of the most strong and open economies in South America. Its economy is market-oriented and characterized by good foreign trade and established financial institutions. It is an associate member of the Common Market of Southern Cone and a member of the Asia-Pacific Economic Corporation. It also became a member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in May 2010.

Chile has a market-oriented economy, with exports accounting for one-third of its Gross Domestic Product. The mining and export of copper accounts for approximately three-quarters of its global exports and Chile's economy has the strongest sovereign bond rating in South America. However, its strong market orientation meant that its economy was more seriously affected by the 2009 financial crisis than other countries. Between 2000 and 2008, GDP growth averaged 4.80 percent annually, whereas in 2009, a negative rate of 1.0 percent was recorded. The economy rebounded, however, in 2010, with an average annual rate of 3.90 percent recorded between 2010 and 2016. Power consumption mirrored the GDP increase rate, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 4.0 percent, between 2000 and 2016, mostly from the industrial and residential sectors.

Thermal power, including gas, coal, and oil technology, accounted for 58.50 percent of Chile's installed capacity in 2016. Of the thermal power technologies, coal contributed the more significant share, with 23.60 percent, followed by gas at 21.80 percent, and oil at 13.10 percent. Hydropower accounted for 30%. Renewable power, including onshore wind, biopower, and solar power, contributed the remaining 11.50 percent.

Renewable power is anticipated to show the more important growth trajectory between 2016 and 2030, rising at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.30 percent. Hydropower is anticipated to grow at a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of 2.90 percent, while thermal power is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.60 percent. The government's desire to diversify the power mix and Chile's big untapped renewable power generation potential will drive the growth of renewable power.
