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.
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.
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.
With a high energy demand, Brazil is looking for new ways to generate energy, and the extraction of biogas from landfills is one of those options.
Do you know what waste fuel is? The CDR is a fuel derived from materials that cannot be used in the biodigestion process, and are used to feed industrial ovens. This type of garbage is crushed in specific machines, managing to reuse everything that is neither organic nor recyclable.
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.
