Renewable Energy in Chile: Barriers and the Role of Public

Context and Research QuestionDrivers of Renewable EnergiesBarriers to Renewable EnergiesPolicy RecommendationsAuthor’S BiographyChile imports around 70 percent of its primary energy supply, due to having limited domestic energy resources.[i] However, since 2010, growth in Chile has had high annual rates of 5 to 6 percent, and the demand for electricity to feed this growth continues to rise at an annual rate of 6 to 7 percent.[ii] With a relatively high energy intensity concerning electricity (Chile is at 0.42 compared to the OECD average of 0.27), Chile requires high levels of electricity input to produce an increase in its GDP, revealing a low energy efficiency of its economy (increasing the GDP by 1 unit requires an almost 1.5 unit increase in the electricity supplied).[iii]To feed Chile’s future development, the country faces the challenge of designing suitable energy polices to safeguard the country’s national autonomy, secure its economic growth, and maintain its living standards. Energy crises in recent years—the latest being in 2008, when Argentina unilaterally cut off gas lines to Chile—have increase...

Switchgear - Wikipedia

A switchgear may be a simple open-air isolator switch or it may be insulated by some other substance. An effective although more costly form of switchgear is the gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), where the conductors and contacts are insulated by pressurized sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF 6). Other common types are oil or vacuum insulated switchgear.
