Solar in South America – Where is the upcoming PV Nation Brazil Heading?

The smarter E Podcast Episode 12 | August 06, 2020

In the international press Brasil currently doesn’t score with overly positive news in regards to sustainability. What therefore easily gets overlooked in the current debates is that Brasil is one of the most interesting nations in regards to photovoltaic.With 4,5 to 6,5 sun hours per day Brasil has one of the highest levels of insolation in the world. A fact it is strongly capitalizing on.

So in this episode we want to set politics aside and focus on the mechanics behind the pv boom in Brasil, the regulatory strategy and the potential development in the future.

Agrophotovoltaics (Agri-PV) refers to a process for the simultaneous use of land for agricultural (Agri) purpose and photovoltaics (PV) energy production. It is a symbiosis process that increases the efficiency of soil use, as it maintains fertile land for agriculture and, at the same time, allows the expansion of photovoltaic energy generation.
