Chile’s energy minister, Maximo Pacheco, has said the energy sector is the most dynamic in his country.

The minister said: “Only in the month of September this year, the country has begun construction of eight new power plants in Chile for more than 300 MW in a month. Four of them are hydroelectric and the remaning four are solar.

“The country is making a huge effort to make up for the time lost,” he continued. “It is making a tremendous effort to invest in the sector because the country deserves to have enough affordable and sustainable energy prices.”
