Brazil reached the historic milestone of 9 GW of operational power in large photovoltaic plants and small and medium systems. The data are from the Brazilian Association of Photovoltaic Solar Energy (Absolar) indicating that the source has brought more than R$ 46 billion in investments and 270,000 new jobs in the country.
The generation of energy from biomass has a current installed capacity of 15,604 MW, representing 9% of the national electrical matrix. With 578 thermoelectric plants, this source is in fourth place, behind hydro, wind and natural gas.
In the last decades, the intensification of human activities has increased the production of waste, creating a serious problem for public administrations in the correct accomplishment of this disposal. At the same time, technological and industrial development has caused greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to reach alarming levels.
LNG is rated to be the source of transition in Brazil and the world. According to EPE, the supply growth in the country is expected to grow 45% in the next decade.
Do you know how clean energy is generated in Brazil? First, it is important to define the concept. Clean energy is all renewable energy that does not emit polluting substances in its production or use. In this case, clean energy is considered: solar, wind, geothermal, hydraulic, biomass and tidal energy.
