  • Chile, U.S. to cooperate on renewables including ocean energy

    Energy officials of the United States and Chile have signed an agreement under which they will cooperate to advance non-conventional renewable energy including ocean energy.

    Chile Energy Minister Marcelo Tokman and U.S. Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel Poneman signed the agreement June 23, 2009, during a visit to Washington by Chilean President Michelle Bachelet.

    Under the agreement, Chile and the United States will cooperate on high priority energy issues, such as energy efficiency technologies and developing renewable energy sources including ocean, solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels.

    The agreement also makes Chile’s new Renewable Energy Center eligible for U.S. Department of Energy technical support.

    Tokman outlined the proposed Centro de Energias Renovables in 2008, saying Bachelet plans to extend the center to include the union of South American nations, Union de Naciones Suramericanas, during her acting presidency of the organization. (HydroWorld 8/8/08)

    Acting as a “technological antenna,” the Chilean center is to identify developments in clean technologies and best practices in renewable energies from around the world.
