Chile aims to ban the building of new coal-fired power plants.

The nation’s Energy Ministry and electric power generators’ association Asociación de Generadoras have committed to not build any new coal plants without carbon capture and reduction technologies.

 

Enel, ENGIE and AES, have also made an accord to form a common working group, a schedule and the conditions for the reduction of coal-fired power plants.

The International Energy Agency recently emphasized that Chileans have made considerable  progress in the fortification  of its green energy potential.
