In our country, the National Government is betting strongly on renewable energies through the RenovAr Program and more and more companies are interested in investing in the sector.
The Ministry of Energy awarded 66 projects of Round 2.0 at the end of 2017, corresponding to wind, solar, biomass, biogas and hydroelectric power, with a significant reduction in prices compared to the auction of the previous year.
A total of 1,407 megawatts were awarded, when the forecast was 1,200.
In the province of Jujuy, in the north of the country, the construction of the largest solar park in Latin America and the second largest in the world is under way. It will have more than 1.2 million solar panels and an installed capacity of 300 megawatts.
According to a survey carried out by consultants KPMG in Argentina among executives and local businessmen, 56% think that solar energy will increase its relative share in the country among all renewable energy sources in the next 5 years.
The region with the greatest potential is the north and northwest of Argentina.
