  2. 2. Unleash the potential of the CSP market in ChileDon’t miss this event! Call now to secure your seat – early bookers get the best prices! CSP as Chile’s perfectenergy solutionMuch has been said about the potential of theCSP market in Chile and there has also been a lotof media hype surrounding the unlimited solaropportunities in this country. Whether you arean idealist or a realist there are some key factsabout Chile that cannot be denied: FACT: The cost of electricity in Chile is one of thehighest worldwide and its demand is expected tokeep growing in the future FACT: Nearly 100% of Chile´s energy is imported,leaving the country vulnerable to price fluctuationsand supply chain problems FACT: The Direct Normal Irradiation (DNI) isamong the highest in the world in the AtacamaDesert, up to 3,800KW/h at high altitudes FACT: The demand curve in the Great North,where most of the CSP development is expected,is continuous and flat 24/7 making CSP idealcompared to other potential renewable sources FACT: Law 20257 was passed in 2010 with astipulation that 10% of total energy generated inChile has to come from renewable sources FACT: Mining companies and other industries aretrying to minimize their carbon footprint whilstenhancing their international competitivenessLooking at the facts you will see that Chile is aperfect storm: the energy-starved market suffersfluctuations but its relatively small size makesit hard to tip negotiations in its favor. Thereforetaking advantage of an unused, plentiful resourceof the desert seems like a no-brainer.Realizing the CSP opportunity in ChileHowever time teaches us that the most logicalsolution to the problem is often ridden withchallenges. And Chile is no exception.Being a free market, there is very littlegovernment intervention to help developrenewables, other than law 20257. As aconsequence, the main established utility in thecountry has become very conservative and arelooking after their interests. For the most partthis is to keep everything exactly as it is and tocontinue raising energy prices when costs rise.However, a free energy market isn´t necessarilythe best policy for Chile´s interests. It keepsthe country dependent on energy imports andvulnerable to price fluctuations that could easilymake them uncompetitive internationally. For thatreason the Chilean government wants to helpalong the evolution of renewable energy in itsstrategic energy frameworks.The mining companies, who in the GreatNorth are the biggest consumers of electricityare equally conservative in terms of energyprocurement.Mining companies have a history ofdealing with their own sourcing andPPAs but they are conservative in theirapproach. The CSP industry must clearlyexpose and prove the flexibility anddispatchability of the energy produced tothe grid.Furthermore, there are plenty ofchallenges in Chile to develop projects,least of which is the fact that in themiddle of the Atacama Desert, with thehighest DNI in the world, the chances ofcoming across plentiful water is next tozero. The mining companies pump theirwater from the ocean hundreds of kmaway and then desalinate it for use in themines, but this is an impossible cost forCSP companies to face. Consequently,dry cooling is the only solution whendeveloping in the desert. Adding to thatthe cost of thermal storage, a must-havein the Great North in order to matchdemand, makes the CAPEX costlierin a country where private banks arereluctant to lend to CSP projects. And totop that all off CSP must be seism-ready,as Chile is in an area where seismicactivity is frequent and very strong, so itrequires more attention and cost to laythe foundations appropriately.First priority: Reduce costs tocompete with fossil fuelsThe basic message here is that in orderto stay and succeed in the Chileanmarket the costs must come down – andfast! The added technical difficultiesprovides an opportunity to becomecompetitive, build a track record andgain the trust of the multi-billion dollarmining industry. This would undoubtedlyopen new doors for CSP developmentgoing forwards. Make no mistake thestakes for the industry in Chile are very,very high!Get the answers needed to succeedin ChileWith everything that is happening in Chile,the first CSP Today LATAM event in 2013 istaking place in Antofagasta (Chile) in July.This event will bring together the energyand mining industry in a high level, intimatescenario which hasn´t taken place before, toexchange ideas, form partnerships and dobusiness.Combining months of research with yourfeedback, we´ve organized a program thathas all the ingredients to teach you, step bystep, how to develop and build a CSP projectin Chile, including: Expert advice on developing projects inChile: From securing land, environmentalpermits and connecting to the grid tochoosing the right technology and securingfinance What the clients want: Understand whatthe mining companies are looking for in aPPA partnership Understand the full value propositionof CSP: From CAPEX to OPEX, capacityfactor and plant lifecycle learn how build anunbeatable financial strategy Technical analysis of CSP adapted tothe Chilean conditions: Get to grips withthe various CSP technologies and theirexperiences in Spain and USA, includingGemasolar (19.9MW tower, 15 hours ofstorage) and El Morón (50MW parabolictrough ) among many othersCSP Today LATAM 2013 - the wholeindustry in one placeAt CSP Today we have international expertiseon how to get the most senior experts anddecision makers in one room to advance theindustry.
