Argentina signs first contracts from RenovAr 1

Argentina's Ministry of Mines and Energy has signed the contracts with seven developers, for 315 MW of the 1,142 MW awarded in the first round of its renewable energy auction, RenovAr 1.

The projects include five wind farms, one biomass and one biogas plants, which represent 28% of the total awards in the first tender round of the RenovAr renewables programme.

Together, they will produce 8.3 terrawatt hour (TWh) of electricity which, according to the ministry, is the equivalent of 5.7% of the country’s estimated energy mix in 2018.
