New Energy research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/15/2014 -- Argentina's power sector continues to struggle, with power generation increasing by just 1.6% in 2013, below consumption growth, and occasional blackouts highlighting the clear need for increased generating capacity.Although the government has taken some significant stepstoaddress the issues affecting the sector, including proposals to reform the energy subsidy regime and a recently announced nuclear deal with Russia, the industry has a long way to go in terms of catching up to some of its Latin American peers.

We expect increased will lead generation to increase more rapidly in 2014 as new capacity comes...
