first edition Hyvolution Chile

The very first edition of Hyvolution Chile opens its doors today. As a reminder, the event will be held at the Metropolitan Santiago, in the heart of the capital of Chile, from 28 to 30 June 2023. The first day kicks off at 9.30am (UTC-5) with the fair opening and inaugural ceremony. The day will then be punctuated by 3 one-hour panels.

Hyvolution Chile: the first panel of the 2023 edition

The first panel of the day will be held from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. It will focus on “National Green Hydrogen Strategy: Chile and its Territories.” The least we can say is that this panel promises an engaging discussion as eminent figures from the Chilean industry and government will be taking part in it. Diego Pardow, Chile’s Minister of Energy, will be opening the debate by sharing his vision for the future. The discussion will be moderated by Marcos Kulka, Executive Director of H2 Chile, who will share his valuable experience in the field of renewable energy.

Other panellists include Alex Santander G., Head of Policy and Studies at the Ministry of Energy; Jorge Flies, Governor of Magallanes (a region of the Southern Chilean Patagonia); and Ricardo Diaz, Governor of Antofagasta (a region in the North of Chile). They will bring their unique outlook to the dialogue and enhance the conversation with their extensive knowledge of the subject.

Second panel of the day

Later in the afternoon (from 3pm to 4pm) a second panel will follow. Entitled “Green Hydrogen Permits and Regulations,” this panel will be presided by Enrique Cáceres Espinoza, Research Coordinator at H2 Chile. Several Chilean experts will contribute to the discussion, including: Heinz Dobbel, Advisor to the Sustainable Development Division (Ministry of Economy); Karla Chace, Head of the Hydrocarbons Unit (Ministry of Energy); and Cristian Rojas, Head of the Department of Innovation and Mining Development (Ministry of Mining).

Together, they will explore current authorisations and regulations in the field of green hydrogen. They will offer an insight about how these factors can influence and shape the future of this emerging industry.

Goods things always come in threes

To round off this first day, a final panel will be held from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. It will look at “Shared Infrastructure” in the green hydrogen sector. David Medrano i Moya (Chile’s Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications) will introduce the subject. Lida Gutiérrez (Chile’s Ministry of Energy) will then lead an in-depth discussion with the panellists.

The talk will involve Jorge Taboada, Executive Director of Soventix Chile; Ana Maria Ruz, Executive Director of Corfo’s H2V Development Committee; and Gonzalo Moyano Gortazar, Managing Director of MAE ENERGY. Through their expert outlook, they will explain how shared infrastructure can speed up the development of green hydrogen in Chile, and beyond.
