Fast Market Research recommends "Argentina Power Report Q1 2015" from Business Monitor International, now available
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2014 -- Argentina's power generation grew by 5.3% in 2014, as the Atucha II nuclear plant went online after years of delays - a crucial step in the government's ambitious nuclear expansion plan. Nevertheless, the country continues to suffer from poor power infrastructure and insufficient installed capacity, as highligh ted by an agreement to start import ing Bolivian power by the end of 2015. The recen t sovereign default has further damaged the business environment and prompted us to expect the country to remain primarily dependent on Chinese financing for power projects in the short term (particularly in hydropower). However, we hold a much more positive outlook for the country starting from 2016, when a GDP rebound and the possibility of a new course in economic policy after the elections in October 2015 could trigger broader international investment in Argentina's vast untapped potential.

Argentina's power sector remains in poor shape, with a combination of ageing domestic electricity generating capacity and distribution networks, delays to projects for new capacity and a reliance on electricity imports combining with economic woes to deter the sector's prospects. Thermal-based sources, primarily natural gas, remain the cornerstones of the electricity mix - with more than 63% of power generated from oil-, gas- or coal-fired power plants and hydropower providing the next largest contribution (about 25%). Despite government efforts to diversify the electricity mix away from unreliable hydropower and costly thermal imports, including recent agreements with China and Russia to build nuclear power facilities, we do not expect to see a significant shift in the electricity mix during the course of our 10-year forecast period to 2023.
Due to a lack of significant additions expected so far for this year, we forecast total power generation to grow only by 0.9% in 2015. Nevertheless, Argentina's power outlook is brighter over the longer...
