Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, Colombia To Study Cross-Border Power Grid

The governments of Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Peru and Colombia will contract a company to conduct feasibility studies about an electricity interconnection between the five countries, Ecuadorian media reported on June 18, 2008.

The countries' deputy energy ministers met in Quito, Ecuador, on June 17 and 18 to analyse the offers presented by 10 international consultancy companies. One of them will be selected to carry out the study.

The study will take at least a year and should include issues like the regional energy supply and demand and the physical interconnection, the policy management undersecretary to Ecuador's Electricity Ministry, Pablo Cisneros, said.

The results will help to make an advance in the regional energy integration.
