Californian energy model discussed at AmCham Chile roundtable

Integrating Non-Conventional Renewable Energy (NCRE) within electricity systems; Net Billing; and operating interconnected systems from a technical and economic point of view. These, among other areas, were some of the topics covered by the roundtable discussion on renewable energy, organized by the Chilean American Chamber of Commerce, AmCham Chile. The meeting, entitled “20% Non-Conventional Renewable Energy: Sharing the Californian Experience”, focused on sharing experiences and knowledge of practices established by California regarding the integration of NCRE, one of the central concepts of current discussions on renewable energy in Chile. 

Forming part of the activities organized by the Chile-US Energy Business Council of AmCham Chile, the roundtable included the presence of a Californian delegation, led by the California Foundation on the Environment and the Economy (CFEE). The event was sponsored by the companies E-CL, Solar Reserve, Kallman, Colbún and First Solar.
