Winds of change: Chile pursues leadership role in green hydrogen exports

Only Subscribers can read the full Article

Winds of change are blowing through Chile. Long reliant on fossil fuels for much of its energy, and with coal taking up a considerable share in the power mix in the past decade, the South American country now aims for renewables, spearheaded by solar and wind, to have a 70% share in its power matrix by 2030. Chile also has committed to a net-zero emissions (NZE) target by 2050 – the first developing country to do so.

Chile’s ambitious renewables strategy is supported by its geography, which stretches from the sun-drenched Atacama Desert in the north to the windswept Patagonia in the south. But its green ambition does not end there: the Chilean government is confident that the country can lead the way in highly competitive green hydrogen production for domestic use, but also export – and the world is watching.
