Argentina’s significant domestic natural gas and hydro resources has led to an electricity generation system based on these fuel sources, offering low electricity prices. However, declining gas production due to the exhaustion of resources coupled with growing energy consumption is emphasizing the importance of both diversifying energy supply and managing energy demand.
