Under the Ambition to Action project funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German government, NewClimate Institute organised a workshop with stakeholders on the integration of renewable energy technologies into the Argentinean electricity system. Read the Workshop Notes
The workshop was hosted by the Argentinean Independent System Operator, CAMMESA, and brought together representatives from the Argentinean Ministry of Energy, the grid operator TRANSENER and CAMMESA to discuss the impact of scaled up renewables on the current and future operation of the Argentinean electricity grid.
The discussions were led by Dr Karsten Burges, a German expert in renewables integration, who shared experiences from Germany and other countries in the context of Argentina’s drive to increase the share of renewable energies and international climate policy commitments. The integration of variable renewable sources into the electricity system had previously been identified as one of the main barriers for increased long-term climate mitigation ambition in the sector.
