Solar Thermal Energy in Argentina (2009)
This report has been arranged by the TECH4DCM project which is financed by the European Union (EU) FP6 (Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development). This EU Project focuses on promoting solar thermal energy and is being carried out in five countries; Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. The project’s primary goal is the promotion of renewable and efficient energy technologies, paying special attention to overcoming technological barriers
The report begins by examining Argentina’s current energy situation. Like many countries today, there is a looming question in Argentina about how long current reserves of oil, natural gas, etc. will be able to keep up with future demand. From there, the report goes on to analyze the current state of the solar thermal industry in Argentina, how it measures up to the rest of the world, and what could be done to promote the development of the industry.
Like many countries, Argentina has good potential for solar thermal development. To further develop the industry, the report suggests further training, more widespread technical communications, and a more incentivized regulatory framework may all be necessary.
