The president of the Argentina Chamber of Renewable Energy, Marcelo Alvarez, discusses about the production matrix for green energy promoted by the national government.
Mr. Álvarez affirms that the growth of green energy will, not only, help to equal the trade balance, but also, generate employment and lower the energy price.
The government is determining the resolution that will bring a better regulatory frame in the private sector.
The major challenge is to build a non-centralized production model, only in big parks, and not to go for a quicker alternative.
Renewable energies mean a change in the development and consumption model, a paradigm shift, that involves the consumer in the causal change (generating energy).
Argentina together with Mexico, Peru and Brazil, are the most remarkable players in the energy industry. In the case of Argentina, it is due to its market size, and high rate of return.
The country has a huge development potential. For instance, in the case of Lithium, Argentina can develop the industry in terms of accumulation, although they must associate with some partner (country or private), because the country is technologically delayed.
Finally, the agribusiness sector is devolving solar and eolic energies.
