IEASA conducts different studies: technical, economic-financial and legal to make investments in the electricity sector of the Argentina Republic in the framework of the guidelines established by the national Government and the current regulation, especially taking care to achieve the design of mechanisms for public-private partnerships that allow obtaining internal and/or external financing.

A significant percentage of the energy generated by ENARSA is contributed to the national energy system.


Considering the last data of CAMMESA regarding the generation of electrical energy, the Thermal Power Plant Ensenada de Barragán participates with 12% of the country’s thermal generation, while the Plant Brigadier López participates with 6%.

Mobile electric energy generation units

Since ENARSA is in charge of providing energy in all its forms, and in order to meet this requirement in specific cases, we have the Service of Generation of Electric Energy in Emergency Situations, to be produced by a fleet of Electric Energy Generation Units (UGEE), autonomous and transportable, using gasoil or biodiesel as fuel.

The service includes the provision, installation, and operation of the UGEE and its maintenance in optical operating conditions. This way, the purpose is to address emergency situations in installation terms of 12 hours or less, connecting to the systems of sub-trunk transport or of regional distribution before fails or before the necessity of reinforcing systems. It is important to emphasize that this service is available throughout the country.
