Moving Chile

Upscaling electric mobility in Chile and internationally

Since 2017, the Chilean government has been pursuing an electric mobility strategy with the ambitious goal of converting 40% of the passenger car fleet and 100% of buses to electric vehicles by 2050. This can only succeed if the private sector will be more involved, namely because almost all bus systems are privately operated.

The Moving Chile project supports the Chilean Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications and the Ministry of Environment in developing a financing mechanism for electric mobility and piloting the mechanism. The financing mechanism is meant to strengthen private sector investments in electric mobility and to accelerate the deployment of Electric buses outside of Santiago.

On international level, the project supports the Ministries of Transport and Environment in emphasising the need to decarbonise transport in the framework of the Chilean Presidency of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
