Intersolar South America and ABSOLAR sign partnership

São Paulo, August 2018: The Brazilian Photovoltaic Solar Energy Association (ABSOLAR) and Intersolar South America have signed an institutional support partnership agreementto foster the developments of the solar PV sector in Brazil and South America.

The aim of the partnership is to discuss the developments of solar PV in Brazil and South America as well as offer several benefits to the companies working in the sector. ABSOLAR - the national association of the Brazilian solar PV sector - will have its own booth at the event's exhibition to represent and support its members. Members of the association are entitled to a special discount on tickets for the Intersolar South America Conference. The association will also assist orga­niza­tions that are interested in becoming members.

The conference takes place in parallel to the Intersolar South America exhibition, from August 28 to 30, in São Paulo, Brazil and will be attended by government representatives, industry associations, companies, financial institutions and academics. Over 25 sessions, workshops and side events will be presented at this year’s conference. Topics ranging from the Brazilian solar PV market, Latin American solar PV markets, project financing, renewable energy cooperatives, technology and inno­vations in PV equipment manufacturing to electrical energy storage.

The CEO of ABSOLAR, Dr. Rodrigo Sauaia, points out that the event will be a perfect occasion to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the solar PV sector in Brazil. "Solar PV grows exponentially in Brazil, with a highly qualified business environment, generating employment and income in the most varied regions of the country," says Sauaia.

According to Ronaldo Koloszuk, President of the Board of ABSOLAR, the solar PV energy market is vibrant, presenting more and more business opportunities and Intersolar South America Exhibition and Conference is the chance for entrepreneurs to learn more about the sector.
"With the reduction in equipment prices over the recent years, along with the rising electricity tariffs and the professionalization of the sector, solar PV energy has become an investment with very attractive return rates. This creates more and more business opportunities for our members”, adds Koloszuk.
“We are excited to be a part of the promising Brazilian and Latin American developments on the way to a new energy world. The partnership with ABSOLAR has what it takes to sustainably advance the industry and is a cornerstone of our strategy in Brazil,” Dr. Florian Wessendorf, Managing Director of Solar Promotion International GmbH – one of the organizers of Intersolar South America - emphasizes.
