There were also representatives from nearby countries : Walter Verri, the Uruguayan Deputy Minister of Industry, Energy and Mining, Dafne Pino Riffo, who works at Chile’s Regional Secretary of Energy, or Alberto José Antillón Arroyo, the Costa Rican Director, Ministry of Environment and Energy.

Hyvolution Chile has a very broad programme ranging for instance from the new uses and applications of green hydrogen in mining, aquaculture and logistics to Chile’s national green hydrogen strategy. The event will also encompass a strong international outlook addressing issues such as the Chile-European hydrogen value chain or tackling the reality of green hydrogen throughout the world.
