Argentina Evolution of Electricity Generation by Fuel 1971 - 2005


Grid Summary

Argentina has a relatively long tradition in the study and development of renewable energies and application projects, with a variable degree of success. The experience accumulated along the years has allowed the identification of the important role that RE could play in relation to the lack of satisfaction of basic needs of an important segment of the population, often linked to the lack of adequate energy sources. At the same time, when one observes the historical evolution of RE activities and projects it can be seen the sluggishness in the development of this sector and in some cases the stagnation or vanishing of some areas and stakeholders.Motivated by the knowledge that only the implementation of adequate policies will untangle this situation, this study aims at identifying the causes of the behaviour mentioned above, through a systematization of the existing knowledge in the various dimensions of the RE issue, which constitutes the base for an adequate policy formulation process.Another very important fact is that, opposite to what happens in other Latin American countries, the poverty problem is mainly an urban issue in Argentina. 89% of the poor population corresponds to urban and peri-urban areas, 9% is rural dispersed population and the remaining 2% inhabits rural communities of less than 2000 inhabitants. This will strongly condition the kind of solution to be formulated for the lack of energization of this sector of the population...more information.

The Government of Argentina that came to power in 2003 focused on rebuilding an institutional, economic and social structure to correct unacceptably low levels of welfare among the population, especially among the most vulnerable members of society. Within this framework of recovery the government, with the cooperation of the United Nations, is adapting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to reflect the needs and objectives of the country. Some address the specific situation of Argentina aiming at more ambitious goals in most of the dimensions and also by the incorporation of the chapter relating to Decent Work, reflecting the concerns of society and describing the tools considered to be necessary to achieve human development in its widest sense...more information.

The goals of the Government of Argentina (GoA) for the continued development of energy are to continue the expansion of private sector participation in the power business, to diversify the use of primary energy resources, to minimize the negative impacts of energy use on the environment and society, and to make energy services available to the population at large. As part of these goals, the GoA is making serious efforts to consolidate power sector reform throughout the country by, strengthening the power sector regulatory frameworks and institutions in the provinces;promoting enhanced private investment throughout all areas of the sector, including rural electrification...more information.

The MDG data presented here is the latest available from the United Nations Statistics Division. The World Bank has recently released new poverty estimates, which reflect improvements in internationally comparable price data. The new data estimates set a new poverty line of US$1.25 a day and offer a much more accurate picture of the cost of living in developing countries. They are based on the results of the 2005 International Comparison Program (ICP), released in first half of 2008, EIA Energy (2008E),
