Despite the competitive costs of solar and wind technology, Argentina has continued to prioritise fossil gas and nuclear for power generation. However, increasing gas-fired power generation does not lead to the steep reduction in emissions necessary for Argentina to be 1.5°C compatible. Investments need to be redirected towards renewables in order to avoid the creation of stranded assets and lock-in to emissions intensive infrastructure. The most recent data from 2018 shows that renewable energy made up about 13% of Argentina’s total energy supply and only 25% of its power supply in 2019., To avoid the need for extensive negative emissions in the future, Argentina’s proportion of renewable energy production will need to increase steeply this decade. The government is also developing plans to incentivise the uptake of electric vehicles to reduce fossil fuel use, but the implementation of this policy is slow. Meanwhile, the agriculture sector lacks any clear policy framework for emissions reductions. Ending fossil fuel subsidies, banning new fossil gas exploration in domestic gas fields, increasing investments in solar and wind power, and increasing spending on expanding electric mobility are some of the opportunities available to decarbonise the energy sector.
