Again, like at the beginning of the year, the power outages they have an unwanted protagonism on the part of the Government and much less for the users who suffer from the lack of energy supply. According to the World Bank, Argentina exceeds the average of 13 hours of outages. The statistic, in relation to other countries, denotes the lack of investment and equates it to countries in the south of Africa.
The multinational organization specialized in finance and assistance, made a survey of all countries worldwide. The companies that provide electricity delivered information to the agency. The results of Argentina are worrying in relation to other nations. The country shows a high degree of deficiency and practically no development.
The report showed that Argentina has an average cutoff time of 13 hours. The large number of hours can be assimilated to that of Afghanistan, which exceeds 12 hours. The period of lack of supply places the country above only some Africans. Nations like Burundi have 21 average cutoff hours. In the same number of hours they meet Gambia and Central African Republic of the Congo.
The data show that Argentina is closer to Niger The Benin that have an average of 22 and 28 hours, respectively, than Russia that only has an average of half an hour. Further away are Poland with 20 minutes and China, which ranks first, with just 10 minutes of average power outage. These statistics surely imply a reflection on how far Argentina is from reaching countries that have practically no energy deficiency.
The worst fact is that the country is in decline. Every year there is more time without light. Economists have pointed out that the decrease in electricity consumption will not cause anything other than a rebound in the national economy. The restrictions arranged by the national government will not impact the real economy. The request to use less energy will mean a major problem.
