Opportunities for the growing PV market in Brazil

Free Webinar

Thursday, June 2, 2022 I 11:00am BRT/4:00pm CET I Webinar Language: English

Solar energy has gained a significant share in the Brazilian energy matrix. According to the recently published “Global Market Outlook” report by SolarPowerEurope, Brazil is to become a major global solar market by 2026. As of April 2022, Brazil had surpassed 15 GW of total installed solar, with more than 5 GW added in 2021 alone. Distributed-generation systems account for 10 GW of installed capacity, and large-scale solar PV power plants for 5 GW. Distributed generation registered record growth in 2021, but that may well be surpassed in 2022. Driven by the growth of renewables, other technologies envision great market potential. Especially Energy Storage can play an essential role. In this webinar the CEO of ABSOLAR, Rodrigo Lopes Sauaia and Markus Vlasits, Managing Director at NewCharge Energy, will provide insights in this promising market.

Both the recording and the presentation are made available to all registrants after the webinar.
