Abstract: Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo has pledged to guarantee energy sovereignty for the country, claiming that its complicated energy sharing agreements with Brazil and Argentina are unfair. Paraguay is seeking to export excess power to Uruguay, an important source of revenue, but says that Argentine officials have made unreasonable demands. Are the energy sharing agreements unfair and if so, what changes should be made? How successful has Lugo been in negotiating "energy sovereignty" for Paraguay? Is the dispute with Argentina likely to be resolved soon and allow Paraguay to export energy to Uruguay?
