Renewable energy projects contributed 74.6 megawatts to the power grid
According to the Argentina’s Secretariat of Energy, this occurred in the third quarter of the year, when three large-scale projects were implemented
By the end of the third quarter in Argentina, there were 205 active projects in compliance with the Regime for the National Promotion for the Production and Use of Renewable Sources of Electric Energy, sanctioned by Law No. 26,190, with a total capacity of over 5 GW (5,525 MW) added to the energy matrix.
These projects are providing electricity to more than 5.8 million homes, as reported by
Extra! , a partner of TV BRICS.
Instructed by Secretary Flavia Royon, the Wholesale Electricity Market Clearing Company (Compañía Administradora del Mercado Eléctrico Mayorista – Cammesa) has been directed to include hydroelectric power plants in all publications, documentation, and/or information related to renewable energy sources, regardless of their generation capacity, as renewable energy production plants.
It is important to note that with the enactment of Law No. 26,190, electricity generation from renewable sources for the provision of public services and research for technological development purposes was declared a matter of national interest, as well as the production of equipment for this purpose.
According to information provided by Cammesa, in July of last year, 41.36% of electricity demand was met by renewable sources, producing 5,161.09 GWh of energy, while in August, the average supply was 51.47%, generating 6,051.21 GWh.
At the end of the quarter, September concluded with 53.44% of electricity supply.
