The head of the Argentine Wind Energy Association (AAEE), Erico Spinadel, thinks that round 2.0 of the RenovAr renewable energy programme will be more successful than the 1.0 and 1.5 tenders.
Spinadel told news portal Energia Estrategica that in round 2.0, which is expected in the second half of the year, there will be more offers with a real intention to complete the projects. He said that in the first round many people submitted offers with the idea of selling the projects once they get a contract. According to Spinadel this approach would not be repeated so much in the new tender.
In rounds 1.0 and 1.5 of the RenovAr programme Argentina last year awarded contracts to 1.1 GW and 1.3 GW of projects, respectively.
