Smart metering in Santiago de Chile

By Pablo Ramila and Hugh Rudnick

In the 1980s, Chile became a world pioneer when it introduced a series of reforms in the regulation of electricity. The objective of these reforms was to introduce market principles in the sector, so that society could benefit from greater efficiency. 

The regulation – which was visionary for its time – maintained a reactive role, changing only when there were supply crises. This is why, in recent years, a series of regulatory modifications tending to reactivate the sector were introduced. However, this same sector was strongly affected due to a lack of investment and a high dependence on a fuel no longer available, Argentine natural gas.

Energy efficiency and smart grids in Chile
