The Chilean national electricity market (CEN) represents nearly 95% of total demand and operates as a single market, with prices settled on an hourly basis at more than 2,000 nodal pricing locations across the country.
Electricity demand is served predominantly through long-term contracts, with shortfall or excess energy traded between distribution companies, large consumers and Independent Power Producers (IPP) in the spot market. Renewable generation, including hydro, provides roughly 40% of total generation.
