Distributed generation in Brazil continues to grow and reached another installed capacity record, reaching 7 GW of power in September 2021. It is worth mentioning that the 6 GW mark was achieved in June.
Faced with the challenges of developing the electricity sector, players debate how to modernize and encourage new sources, such as the generation of solar energy.
he growth of solar energy in Brazil was positive in 2020. With an underexplored market, the expectation is for constant growth in the next ten years.
The cities of Altos and Campo Maior, located in the north of Piauí, will receive mini solar photovoltaic plants through a public-private partnership (PPP). It is estimated that these two units, one in each city, produce more than 1.3 million kilowatt-hours per month, reducing operating costs with electricity in the state.
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.
Brazil is a country with a high potential for energy production, reaching 20 times greater than all current production. Thus, intensifying investment in solar energy is essential to develop the sector.
Saving on the energy bill is one of the main benefits of solar energy. However, this source also has other advantages. Look! Do you know all the benefits of solar energy? Although this energy alternative has many advantages, in Brazil, its representation is only 1.7% of the entire energy matrix.
