The E-mobility Readiness Plan is designed to promote the introduction of grid-enabled electric vehicles in Chile on a large scale, leading to a target of 70,000 electric vehicles by the year 2020. The plan foresees the implementation of a set of activities to target barriers and provide incentives to achieve the overall target.
Activities: (2020 - 2020)
This NAMA will undertake activities along 3 pillars:
- Market creation
- Charging infrastructure
- Research and development
The pillars work together to help reach the overall target. Cross-cutting activities support the pillars, including communication and public diffusion activities and a monitoring, reporting and verification framework.
The NAMA is planned in two phases with the first starting in 2012 and the second in 2015. The first phase will be a learning phase with three pilots to demonstrate the technology and to prepare several studies to support the private and public sectors in laying the groundwork for an electric vehicle market and a suitable charging infrastructure to supply it. The second phase will seek a scale up of market-based and regulatory instruments to achieve a penetration of electric vehicles of approximately 1% of the vehicle fleet by 2020.

|The most important economic benefits of this NAMA stem from the transfer of electric vehicle and battery technology to Chilean institutions. Chile has the second largest lithium reserves in the world and this NAMA can provide a starting point which could be further pursued by the Government of Chile into an industry with high-added value.Social co-benefits include reductions in petroleum imports of which Chile is highly dependent on. Chile imports approximately 95% of its petroleum supply
|Environmental co-benefits of this project include reductions in local emissions of NOx – the most important precursor to ozone formation, and also reductions in particulate matter from diesel and gasoline combustion. Santiago de Chile, the main target region of the programme with the largest concentration of population in Chile, is known for its high levels of smog especially in the winter. With the reduction of airborne pollutants the health of urban dwellers will be improved. The impact of such pollutants is well documented in literature.
