Solar Focus – Large-Scale PV in Brazil

Free Webinar

Tuesday, October 6, 2020 | 10:00am–11:00am BRT / 3:00pm–4:00pm CEST | Webinar Language: English

Competitive solar auctions have brought large-scale solar PV to a new level in Brazil. Not only has the source gained ground in auctions from the Federal Government, it has now gained traction and attention as part of the direct PPAs (Power Purchase Agreement) Free Market, a dynamic environment full of opportunities and particularities for PV players. Join us into exploring more about the background of large-scale solar PV in Brazil and its main growth vectors for coming years.

During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations are made available to all registrants after the webinar.

Opportunities through Agri-PV in Brazil

June 29, 2022

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.
