April 16 (Renewables Now) - A total of 44 renewable energy projects in Argentina have submitted dispatch priority requests during the first quarter of 2018, says CAMMESA, the manager of the country's wholesale electricity market.

The total capacity of the projects is 2,031 MW, according a new report by CAMMESA, although there was no information about the capacity of two of the projects. The deadline for submitting requests was March 28.

In January this year, an initial group of nine wind and solar projects, with a combined capacity 273.12 MW, was granted dispatch priority within the framework of the Renewable Source Electric Power Term Market Regime (MATER), which regulates the country's private market. These dispatch priority assignments followed the receipt of 38 requests for 2,150 MW of capacity by the deadline of November 30.
