In 2019, there were 28 coal power units distributed among six locations in Chile. Today only 20 of those 28 continue to operate. The majority of the units still operating have a lifetime of less than 15 years, with the newest unit beginning operations in 2019.

This case study outlines Chile’s coal plant retirement plan and the actions taken to approach energy transition challenges with justice. It also explores just energy transition challenges in Tocopilla, a region with a high dependency on coal power generation.
