Our overarching mission is to contribute to the Chilean energy transition through renewable energies, storage systems, smart energy & innovative services and solutions.

Building an ecosystem for clean energy

Chile is one of the countries with the biggest renewable energy potential in the world, and as EDF we want to help it to develop that potential. Currently the group is active in the power generation sector, particularly in gas, wind and solar, with an installed capacity of 1,186 MW. EDF Renewables Chile specialises in designing, building and operating large-scale wind farms and solar plants.
