After 55 years in the iconic building in the center of Santiago, the country’s main electrical holding company changes its address to a building with the highest and most modern standards of energy efficiency and sustainability.

More than 1,400 workers from Enel Chile, its subsidiaries and related companies, gradually began the move to the new corporate building in the most modern and sustainable architectural project developed in Chile: Mercado Urbano Tobalaba (MUT).

Techniques that, together with other initiatives, achieve reduce energy consumption by 32%.

He irrigation of green areas will be done 100% with recycled or reused water. To do this, rainwater will be stored, environmental humidity will be captured and gray water will be recycled, which will allow a saving of 7 million liters per year.
