This paper gives a description of the governance model of the electricity transmission system in Argentina, including different aspects of this system such as network design, ownership, finance, cost allocation, and system operation. In particular, it pays attention to the so-called ‘Public Contest’ method. The key feature of this method is that the decision on the undertaking of a transmission expansion is given to the users (or ‘beneficiaries’) themselves – who also pay for the expansion – rather than to the transmission company, the system operator, the regulator or the government.
