Atacama Desert: the driest place on Earth; a privileged spot with the highest solar radiation in the world.
Atacama Focus was conceived to capture the energetic potential of the zone and contribute to Chile’s Northern Grid decarbonization. The company’s objective is to develop mid and large solar thermal and PV projects, from beginning to end.
Due to its privileged business climate and amazing solar resource, Chile is one of the best places on Earth to develop solar energy projects. It was the first country in the region to join the OECD and has grown continuously during the past 20 years. Moreover, demand for clean energy is quickly increasing due to abundant mining operations present in the zone. These reasons, coupled with world’s highest solar irradiation makes of Chile the perfect place to invest in solar energy.
Sustainable energy and low carbon development are at the core of Atacama Focus’ values. These values, combined with strong knowledge of Chilean electric market, make Atacama Focus the best partner to develop solar projects in Chile.
In March of 2012 Atacama Focus contracted Valor Sustentable services, a Chilean consultancy company, in order to lead the land acquisition process and carry out necessary energy analysis. The goal is to have land rights of several high-solar-potential territories by the end of 2012.
