International PV companies in Chile share their business challenges

PV Insider has published a short review on the biggest challenges that international PV companies face when building a business in Chile. The review features insights from the Inter-American Development Bank and German PV developer Kraftwerk, among others.

Last week PV Insider asked the international PV community about the biggest challenges in building a PV business in Chile. These have been compiled in a short review published this week that includes the opinion of the Inter-American Development Bank, German PV developer Kraftwerk and China Sunergy.


The main challenges identified are the uncertainty in spot market prices as well as the lack of a PV focused policy support. In the words of Patrick Doyle, Senior Climate and Energy Officer at the Inter-American Bank, "There may be a need for stronger policy support for PV to reach its full potential."

From the point of view of a PV developer company, Karsten Schulte, CEO of Kraftwerk states: "The challenge lies in convincing the Chileans that even small to medium-sized PV systems present an attractive investment."
