El Futuro Solar Argentina


8-9 MAY 2018 /// BUENOS AIRES

Get all the insights and connections for successful PV business in Argentina


A total of 1732.4 MW PV capacity has been awarded in Argentina's auction program so far. It underlines the country's progress to become the Renewable Energy powerhouse of the region, a status that only fits its potential.

During El Futuro Solar III we continue on the path to PV success. With over 260 participants in the second edition, the event is the leading or sole PV focused conference for the local industry and international organizations working on Argentina's Solar Future.


Argentina’s solar PV tenders - in which more than 1700 MW of PV capacity was awarded - have quickly turned the country in one of the hottest solar markets in LATAM. The tone has been set and Argentina is ready to move forward with Distributed Generation, PV for corporations (direct PPAs and self generation), off-grid electrification and of course further expansion of RenovAr!
