The article focuses on the opportunities offered by Chile for investors in the non-conventional renewable energy (NCRE) sector. Topics discussed include the enactment of Law No 20,257 in April 2008 aimed at promoting NCRE sources, the results of the Chilean Energy Commission's (CNE) tender for companies to feed power into the Interconnected Central System (SIC), announced in December 2014, and the obstacles facing some NCRE developers caused by the growing NIMBY (Not in my backyard) movement.
