The centralized paradigm that resists change

The centralized paradigm that resists change

IT IS TIME TO CONTEMPLATE A DECENTRALIZED ARCHITECTURE THAT MAXIMIZES THE CAPABILITIES OF DISTRIBUTED RESOURCES AND MINIMIZES THE EXTERNALITIES OF LARGE-SCALE PROJECTS. In the current energy transformation process, we face a paradigmatic challenge: to adapt our institutional structures and methodologies to a reality where sustainability objectives are a priority. Historically, the energy sector, governed by economic efficiency and security of supply, operated under the assumption…

Evsy: Find all the charging points for electric cars in one App

Among the challenges of living in the city is how quickly we adopt new technologies. Electric cars are a reality, but their implementation is full of challenges for their full massification. In a new chapter of “Energía Infinita”, actress Leonor Varela presented us with Evsy, an application that has a map with all the charging points for electric vehicles in your city and you can…

Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI) Participates in the Creation of the National Center for Advanced Decentralized Energy Solutions (SEDA)

Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI), through its Energy Transition Center (CENTRA), has played an essential role in the creation and development of the innovative National Center for Advanced Decentralized Energy Solutions (SEDA). This initiative is a key component of the Chilean Ministry of Energy’s Energy Agenda 2022-2026, which aims to transform the energy sector into a catalyst for economic growth and a pillar of a new…

Electrical distribution and its regulation: keys to electromobility and distributed generation

“WE CANNOT ADDRESS DISTRIBUTION REFORM WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THAT IT IS A MARKET TRANSFORMATION” Recent studies in Chile show that around 6 GW netbilling-type generation projects, without storage, could be integrated into distribution networks, which is equivalent to 50% of the maximum demand of the National Electric System (SEN). On the other hand, 426,000 new cars were sold in the country last year. If they were…

Centra UAI and Cigre develop first seminar focused on the energy user

The innovative meeting will include debates on the global energy crisis, security, carbon neutrality and climate change. In an event that seeks to address the challenges related to the energy user, the Chilean Committee of the International Council of Large Electrical Grids (Cigre Chile) and the Energy Transition Center (CENTRA) of the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences of the Adolfo Ibáñez University, will bring together specialists from…

Distributed Generation in Chile for global decarbonization

From the point of view of self-consumption, there is also evidence that the development of electricity supply systems with a high integration of generation and distributed storage can facilitate the electrification of transport and heating, which is crucial to achieve global decarbonization goals. It is difficult to conceive of a perspective from which a distributed energy supply system does not exceed the technical performance of…
