Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 13, 2017
SWH ArgentinaThe first time that the new Cámara Argentina de Fabricantes de Equipos de Energía Solar Térmica (CAFEEST) (Argentine Chamber of Solar Thermal Equipment Manufacturers) was presented to a wider audience was on 4 September in Buenos Aires. The chamber’s assembly meeting was hosted by the Ministry of Industry. Currently, CAFEEST has 20 members, mostly manufacturers, and seven more may join soon. Dardo Allaragüe, President of CAFEEST and head of Montajes Rosario, a solar system supplier, said that the objective was to support a growing local industry, help create jobs and participate in implementing standards and certification schemes. There’s also a new law being discussed in parliament to further solar thermal installations, rules and incentives across the country.

Argentina: President’s System Order and Planned Energy Price Hikes Boost Solar Thermal

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 24, 2016
Argentina EnergeAfter having announced plans to sharply increase energy prices across the country, the Argentine government is said to approve new legislation for promoting solar thermal technology. A new bill, which is expected to be passed by the end of 2016, is thought to create a number of financial incentives, soft loans and a binding obligation for solar water heaters in public buildings. However, the domestic market has already been experiencing remarkable growth: Solar water heaters have gained a significant boost in popularity since this July, when President Mauricio Marci ordered a 260-litre system equipped with a flat plate collector from Energe, one of Argentina’s major solar thermal suppliers. The photo posted on Energe's Facebook page shows the president (middle) and a team from the company at the new solar thermal installation.

The first 33 solar systems have already been installed in a social housing project in Moreno, a district of the country’s capital Buenos Aires. In the long term, FOVISEE aims to install 100 systems in the district – and is looking for a partner which will help finance the project.
