AWS Truepower to lead Argentina renewable energy potential study
AWS Truepower, LLC, an international leader in renewable energy consulting and information services, recently announced a $1 million joint venture with Aires Renewables to identify and quantify the wind and solar resources in the San Juan province of Argentina. The project, funded through Argentina?s San Juan province power utility, EPSE, aims to provide the government with validated, high-resolution wind and solar resource maps, long-term datasets and build-out scenarios for renewable energy projects throughout the San Juan territory.
The multi-phase project includes five technical tasks and will span approximately two years. AWS Truepower will lead the initial resource assessment using advanced numerical weather prediction models and historical data. The preliminary resource maps will be validated and refined using onsite data from meteorological stations sited, installed, and maintained by the joint venture. The last task in the project includes build-out scenarios for ideal project locations throughout the San Juan service territory.
