Brazil’s government plans to add wind energy plants with a cumulative output of 17 gigawatts, as well as photovoltaic systems delivering a total 3.5 gigawatts, to the country’s electricity supply by 2023. Decisions as to which new power plants will be built are taken through auctions held by the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica, ANEEL).
The Latin American solar market grew at an annual rate of 370% in 2014, according to the report from GTM Research. Brazil places third on the list, after Mexico and Chile.
