Renewable energy suffers pandemic growth

According to a PwC survey, the pandemic of the new coronavirus was responsible for accelerating the development of renewable sources in the business models of energy companies. Also according to the study, this trend can take the sector to the next stage of the energy transition – zero carbon emission target by 2050.

To this, the survey indicates the need to develop new products and services, as well as demand management and the establishment of time-to-use tariffs, to think about technologies of storage of electricity. In Brazil, this type of management of demand becomes even more complex due to its geographical dimensions and regulatory issues.

However, it is worth remembering that Brazil has one of the cleanest energy matrices in the world due to the use of hydroelectric plants. And yet, the country is also experiencing the growth of renewable energies such as solar, wind and natural gas.

Also according to the study, in Great Britain, for example, the period pandemic was the longest in which the electrical system operated without the need of coal plants since 1822. This is because the demand was supplied by 39% renewable sources, 30% natural gas and 21% renewable energy Nuclear. All these factors indicate a positive outlook in the generation of Renewable energy.
