Chile has appointed Rodrigo Iglesias as the new head of the state-run energy board, Comisión Nacional de Energía (CNE), the government announced Thursday. Iglesias replaces Pablo Serra -who was dismissed November 18 after a series of blunders concerning electricity tariffs - and will take over December 4. Although currently working as a private energy consultant advising on Latin American regulatory issues, Iglesias was in charge of the electricity section at CNE between 1998 and 2005.
