Project Description
The project is an allocation under the Chile Climate Change Framework Loan (CCFL). It consists of the construction and operation of a 36 MW onshore wind farm in Los Lagos region in Chile, including a 22 km connection line to the transmission system. The project, if located in the EU, would fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive leaving to the competent authority the decision as to whether an EIA is required or not. According to the applicable Chilean law, power plants with a capacity beyond 3 MW require an environmental impact study (EIS). The competent authority decides whether the project requires an EIA on the basis of a set of predefined criteria. In this case, the project underwent an EIS, which concluded that the project does not have any significant negative environmental or social impact.

Contact Information
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address complaints@eib.org, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form, via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union. Additional details, including filing requirements and complaint forms, are available at: http://www.ombudsman.europa.eu/atyourservice/interactiveguide.faces
