Smart City Special

Experts agree that 5G has a great impact on Smart cities, revolutionizing their design and management. This trend offers a wide variety of capabilities, such as ultra-high bandwidth, low latency and speed in data transmission that contribute to cities with these types of characteristics. “5G allows data transmission speeds of up to one hundred times more than 4G in mobile phones, and a latency of…

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…

Electric mobility could contribute 17% of Chile’s decarbonisation goal by 2050

Although 100% electric models have increased by 275% in three years, experts agree that it is urgent to advance in greater incentives, benefits and an ecosystem that allows the massification of electromobility throughout the national territory. It is estimated that today transport is responsible for 35% of energy consumption in our country. And of this segment, 86% corresponds to land transport. This means that the…

Charging points: the unresolved debt in electromobility for private cars

Electric car sales have increased. According to figures from the National Automotive Association of Chile (Anac), 6,904 units were registered in 2022, an increase of more than 100% compared to 2021, but they still represent a lower percentage of the entire automotive market in the country. According to the National Electromobility Strategy, from 2035 they will only sell electric vehicles. However, apart from the price…

Snapshot: Chile’s EV charging point rules

Chile’s energy ministry has introduced secondary legislation on electric vehicle charging point interoperability and standards. The concept of interoperability is outlined in energy efficiency law No. 21,305, which entered the statute books in 2021 and, chiefly, mandates the creation of a national energy efficiency plan. The rules fall under a wider push to help ensure owners can charge their vehicles at any point in the…

Why regional leader Chile’s electric bus embrace will likely tighten

Luis Gutiérrez is director of the Civil Engineering in Energy career and academic of the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences of the Adolfo Ibáñez University, associate researcher for the Center for Energy Transition (CEnTra-UAI) and for the Solar Energy Research Center (SERC-Chile). Luis holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering, Power Systems, from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom.   In 2023 Chile will have around…

Power lines: The main challenges in terms of monitoring and inspection in Chile

Although they have different specific objectives, power line monitoring and inspection aim to improve the availability of these vital elements of our electrical infrastructure. In general, monitoring is related to the real-time operation of the system while line inspection is a maintenance task (preventive or corrective).   Power lines are a fundamental part of transporting energy to points of consumption. For this reason, optimal availability…
