Renewables made up an average of 13.5% of Argentina’s electricity demand during the first nine months of 2022, the energy secretariat said citing data by Argentine wholesale electricity market administrator CAMMESA.
The penetration of renewables was lower than average in July, 12.4%, climbing to 13.5% in August and 15.6% in September.
During the three-month period, two biogas-fired power plants with a combined capacity of 3.62 MW were hooked to the grid. Both of these projects, the 2.4-MW Pollos San Mateo and the 1.22-MW General Villegas, were successful in Argentina’s RenovAR 2 renewable energy programme.
At the end of the third quarter, Argentina had 5,160 MW of installed renewable energy capacity across 190 operational plants, the energy secretariat said.
