Abstract: This analysis includes appropriate technologies as well as the characteristics specific to rural communities that will allow for successful implementation of renewable energy technologies (RETs). The degree of socioeconomic development, organizational and training level, and the potential access to energy resources emerge as key factors, where typical livelihoods are based on cattle breeding and small-scale agriculture. Three cases were assessed focusing on the use of RETs for water supply: photovoltaic pumping from deep wells in Catamarca Province; small wind turbine pumping for isolated producers in Comahue, Neuquén Province; and grid connected high-power wind turbines for irrigation in La Rioja Province.
