The Systep Team is pleased to present the Monthly Report of the Chilean Electricity Sector (in Spanish).

In this edition, the effects and impacts of the interconnection between the former SIC (SEN Sur) and the former SING (SEN Norte) are analyzed. In this context, its effects on the market in the north of the system, its operation and its effect on renewable generation are reviewed. One of the great benefits of interconnection is the decongestion of the northern system, which has allowed a considerable reduction in operating hours with zero marginal costs. However, hours with zero costs in the SEN North have been presented in an unprecedented way, which puts pressure on the completion of the interconnection project.

We expect that this report will be a contribution to the electricity industry, where we also review the following information:

Analysis of the operation of each interconnected system.
Systep 12-months spot price forecast (SIC and SING).
Summary by companies.
Auction prices.
Non-Conventional Renewable Energies.
Regulatory monitoring.
Projects in Environmental Impact Assessment.

Its distribution is performed monthly.
