Energy Efficiency Law

Last updated: 11 February 2022

Every 5 years the Ministry of Energy will prepare a National Plan for Energy Efficiency which must include targets for: energy efficiency in residential applications, minimum standards and artifact labelling; energy efficiency standards in buildings, transport and smart cities, energy efficiency standards in sectors for manufacturing and education and training and education in energy efficiency. The Plan referred must establish a goal of reducing energy intensity for the country,
at least 10% by 2030, compared to 2019.

The metric that will be used to define the transport standard will be in kilometers per litre of gasoline equivalent for the total fleet. In addition, its equivalence in grams of CO2/kilometer will be determined. Those responsible for compliance will be the importers or the representatives for each branch of vehicle marketed in Chile. The performance of each electric or hybrid vehicle may be counted up to three times.
