Enel Generación Launches Platform for Hourly Tracking of the Origin of Consumed Renewable Energy

Published on Tuesday, 13 December 2022

  • This unprecedented system in Chile will allow free customers to know the origin of their energy 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • 24/7 Carbon Free Energy is the product based on the SCC platform for tracking and traceability of carbon-free energy that now begins its commercial phase


Santiago, December 13, 2022 - Enel Generación presented "24/7 Carbon Free Energy", the first application for hourly monitoring of the origin of renewable energy. The platform available for free customers, unique in the country, shares where the energy they use in their operations is generated 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The new platform complements the Renewable Energy Certificates that some companies have opted for to certify that the energy consumed in a year has a 100% renewable origin. The carbon-free energy tracking and traceability platform are now starting its commercial phase.

"From now on, we take another step in the energy transition process. Our mission is to help our customers on the path towards decarbonization, towards 100% renewable energy, offering solutions for everyone, and 24/7 Carbon Free Energy is proof of this. In line with decarbonization and digitalization, we continue to move towards the future hand in hand with our customers," said Alfredo Hott, Trading and Commercialization Manager of Enel Generación.

The platform was tested in a pilot in 2022 in conjunction with five free customers with excellent results. We were achieving 100% hourly traceability for our customers with energy supplied by a mix of wind, solar, geothermal, and hydro technologies.

Until now, the traceability of renewable energy has been yearly. From now on, "24/7 Carbon Free Energy" identifies the energy hourly from its origin and links it to the business supply, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The platform allows for multiple user roles - such as producer, supplier/retailer, consumer, and auditor/verifier - with responsibilities and functionalities appropriate to the specific needs of each group. It also provides reporting and data visualization through an integrated dashboard.

This innovative solution began development in mid-2021, and by the end of that year, the pilot stage began with customer participation to become the first commercial application of its kind in the country.
