New report from the World Energy Council Chile - Future-Proofing Energy: 2020
SYSTEMATIZATION OF LESSONS AND SYNTHESIS OF CHALLENGES FROM THE ENERGY SECTOR
This study is part of the initiative Future-Prooﬁng Energy designed by the executive directorate of the World Energy Council Chile and Yuken Impact research Lab.
The combined effects of the COVID pandemic and the previous social outbreak revealed relevant weaknesses in the social, economic, political, and productive structure in Chile. This type of weakness becomes a problem that puts the country and sector’s future at risk.
A “future-proof” energy system is one where new ways for creating private and public – social, environmental, and economic – are not limited by restrictions imposed from within the system; limited ability to react to unforeseen events; disregard for the value of people; or anchoring to rules, processes or technologies that do not allow progress.
This initiative is a synergic, diverse, and collaborative effort to become architects of Chile's energy future, with shared goals and a common destiny.
