Latin America Business Forum invites you to participate in this seminar on the 9th of October 2019 (14:30-16:30) at State of Green to learn about District Heating in Chile.


Burning firewood for heating purposes in South-West Chile results in severe health issues and premature deaths. Danish companies have sustainable District Heating solutions to help Chileans gain access to modern energy, reduce health hazards, carbon emissions, and increase quality of life.

The aim of this seminar is to

(1) Raise the awareness of District Heating market potential in Chile for Danish firms by presenting Chile’s current District Heating challenges and look into its future,

(2) Highlight Danish companies’ District Heating solutions, know-how, and role supporting district heating development in Chile,

(3) Highlight synergies and collaboration opportunities with possible Chilean partners. The major expectation is to set the grounds for dialogue between Danish companies and stakeholders in the Chilean market.

Confederation of Danish Industry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and CBS have created Latin America Business Forum as an attempt to change the status of Latin America with the Danish companies. The objective of the network is not to promote Latin America unreservedly. Our goal is to inform about regional opportunities and threats, strengths and weaknesses, in an objective and professional manner. We believe that Latin America has tremendous untapped potential for Danish companies but we also acknowledge the challenges.
