2014-04-02 11:31:02 - Argentina Renewables Report Q2 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
This quarter we have upwardly revised our solar capacity and generation forecasts for Argentina, on account of the recent positive developments within the industry which are likely to spur on the country´s solar expansion programme. Overall however, we remain relatively bearish towards the Argentine renewables industry, as despite some improvements of late, the business environment remains largely unappealing for investors and project finance continues to limit the growth potential of the market.
Argentina´s positive regulatory framework for renewables on the surface looks appealing to investors. For example, the country has adopted an ambitious target of sourcing 8% of its electricity demand from renewables by 2016, offers various tax incentives to renewable developers, has implemented a feed-in tariff (FiT) programme, an energy
auction system and a programme called GENREN. However, despite these attractive incentives, which in another market would typically have drawn in developers, there has been a notable lack of international investor interest in the Argentine renewables market. This was evidenced in July 2013, when it was announced that domestic utility Impsa was the sole bidder in the tender for the expansion phase of the Arauco I wind facility in the country´s La Rioja province.
