The Act on Renewable Energies Sets a New Stage in the Argentine Republic
It is a historic event in Argentina since the development of renewable energies is now considered a state policy. Act 27 191 on Legal Regulations on National Promotion for the Use of Sources of Renewable Energy was passed and enacted in 2015. In order to extend the legal framework, the current Government has passed the regulations of this Act by means of Resolution 531 issued by the Ministry of Energy and Mining. The contribution to the development of clean energies is widely accepted by society.
This Act declares a national interest the generation of electric power from the use of sources of renewable energy so as to supply the public service, as well as the research for technological development and the manufacture of equipment for that purpose.
At present, the Argentine Republic has an installed capacity of almost 800 megawatts for the generation of renewable energy.
Act 27 191 aims at reaching a contribution of sources of renewable energy equal to 8 % of the total national consumption of electric power by 2018 and reaching a contribution of sources of renewable energy equal to 20 % of the total national consumption of electric power by 2025.
In this way, Argentina aims at reaching 10 thousand megawatts generated from sources of renewable energy in ten years.
