Renewables. Opportunities and threats in the 21st century


The ESADE Alumni Buenos Aires Chapter is pleased to invite you to 'Renewables. Opportunities and threats in the 21st century', a presentation by ESADE alumni David Ruyet PhD(c) in economics and EMBA (’07), founding partner and director of Energías Renovables Del Plata S.A.

This presentation will provide an overview of the main factors in the renewable industry in Argentina, and the main business and professional opportunities likely to arise in the forthcoming months in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

In 2016, the Argentine law 27191 created a framework for encouraging renewable energies in Argentina, prompting an increase from the 227 MW in operation to more than 2,500 MW, and a potential construction portfolio of up to 6.000 MW (in other words, almost 20% of the power facilities in Argentina). This not only paved the way for a transformation of Argentina’s energy network (this country’s energy production not only balances its current account, meets demand and replaces fossil fuels) but, on account of the vast potential of energy resources provided by renewable energies in Argentina, gave rise to a new industrial sector bursting with opportunities.
