Our Company

Energía Latina was created in response to the Central Interconnected System's urgent need to increase the generation capacity at the beginning of the last decade. For the past ten years, we have worked to backup first the Central Interconnected System and now the National Electrical System of Chile. Due to the geographical diversification of our plants, they are still needed.

Energía Latina is evolving as a Company and service provider. New technologies and applications have disrupted the local and world energy market, and the Company is executing an ambitious strategic plan to become a key player for the next 20 years, not only in Chile but Latinamerica. The first steps are already visible with the companies first projects, together with the local LPG company Gasco, we build and operate the largest LPG engine-driven power Plant in Teno under the sponsor of Innovación Energía S.A. Another impact project, under the brand Terminal de Gas Caldera aims to construct and operate an LPG seaport for the copper mines located near Copiapo and allowing the use of this gas instead of diesel.

Finally, as energy flexibility requirements are increasingly important, across the Chilean grid and around the world, large energy storage projects will be required to contribute to the decarbonization process the country is beginning to experience. Energia Latina will play an essential role in helping these efforts.
