Chile inaugurates largest renewable energy control room in the country

Enel Chile just opened a ‘Renewables Control Room’ in its corporate offices, which remotely controls all the company’s renewable energy centres, a total of 4.7 GW of installed energy generation capacity. It is the only centre of its kind to integrate four renewable energy technologies: wind, hydroelectric, solar and geothermal.

The project, developed over 4 months, follows the merger of Enel Chile with the Chilean subsidiary Enel Green Power. The company’s role is to make sure that each plant operates at its highest efficiency, and to inject the energy generate into the National Electric System.

Enel Chile is the first renewable energy operator in the country with an installed raw solar energy capacity of 492 MW.
