Description

Ⅰ. Introduction:

Argentina's first ever solar PV tender - in which more than 900 MW of PV capacity was awarded - have quickly turned the country in one of the hottest solar markets in LATAM. The tone has been set and Argentina is ready to move forward on its successful RenovAr program and solar energy in particular. Upcoming developments cover all market segments: tenders in utility scale, corporate PPAs and distributed generation.

After the success of Solarplaza's PV trade mission to Argentina and Uruguay in June 2016, the highly anticipated follow-up will take place 28-30 March 2017. These days will offer a unique chance to develop business and discuss the overall opportunities for PV with local and international stakeholders in solar energy.
