Renewable Energies of Aysén (ENERAYSEN) was established to develop run-of-river hydropower projects in Chile's Region of Aysén. Serving as a low-impact alternative to existing large-scale projects, it aimed to meet local energy demand and reduce the cost of electricity and the city of Coyhaique's air contamination levels.
Our founder supported ENERAYSEN in 2010 with business and legal administrative support. The projects she was tasked with included the development of ENERAYSEN's corporate identity, its fundraising and partnership development strategy; the preparation of legal paperwork and development of environmental studies to demonstrate environmental compliance with the water code; and the concept definition of Parque Huemules - between a national park and spiritual sanctuary around the river Laguna Vera, in the Aysén Region, where ENERAYSEN's founder owned water rights. Laguna Vera and its surrounding land was completely untouched by human activities. The place was only accessible by helicopter. More than just another national part or a futuristic project, Parque Huemules was seen as an opportunity and a privilege to do something great.
As a result of our collaboration, ENERAYSEN was able to obtain approval from the regional regulatory agency to construct three 25MW run-off river projects in Aysén and acquire funding for the basic engineering and study of environmental impacts of a total of five run-off river projects.
