Regulatory Authorities
In January 1992, the Argentine federal congress adopted the Regulatory Framework Law (Law No. 24,065), which established guidelines for the restructuring and privatization of the electricity sector.  This Regulatory Framework Law, which continues to provide the framework for regulation of the electricity sector since the privatization of this sector, divided generation, transmission and distribution of electricity into separate businesses and subjected each to appropriate regulation.

The principal regulatory authorities responsible for the Argentine electricity industry are:

(1) the Secretary of Energy (Secretaría de Energía) of the Ministry of Federal Planning, Public Investment and Services (Ministerio de Planificación Federal, Inversión Pública y Servicios), and
(2) the National Electricity Regulator (Ente Nacional Regulador de la Electricidad, or ENRE).
The Secretary of Energy advises the Argentine government on matters related to the electricity sector and is responsible for applying the policies concerning the Argentine electricity industry.
