The energy transition implies a joint national transformation towards sustainable development in terms of the generation, distribution, and uses of energy, as well as a focus on conserving natural resources to prevent, mitigate, and adapt to the impact of climate change.
Enel Chile's purpose consists of building a common road map towards sustainable progress shared with all stakeholders, so that no one is left behind in this important process, integrating climate challenges within the economic and social growth of the country.
Water resources conservation initiatives
Efficient, rational, and sustainable use of water, in a water-stressed area. Transport of liquid industrial waste from the San Isidro power plant operations, avoiding the generation of waste water and maximizing the recycling of water in other industry production cycles.
An innovative idea to convert the Enel Green Power photovoltaic solar power plants into self-sustainable plants, along with workshops and activities open to the community around the operation and use of renewable energy, energy efficiency, installation and maintenance of residential solar power facilities, recycling and reuse of materials, and visits to the Enel Green Power plants.
Creation of safe spaces for tourist access to the areas around our hydropower plants
Six hectares of land, known as Parque La Isla, returned to the “Mapu Pilmaiquen” Mapuche Huilliche indigenous community for its management and conservation, framed within our commitment to economic development, local identity, and green employment. Safe and controlled access for more than 6,000 tourists per year, to this space of unique beauty and Mapuche identity.
Immediate communication protocol between the Pilmaiquen Hydropower Plant (the “Plant”) operations and interest groups. It considers ordinary and extraordinary actions that may occur in the Plant's operations and that may have an effect on the area's activities. Specifically, with respect to potential changes in the Pilmaiquen river level.
