Good winds for the Brazilian energy sector

Since the crisis of the blackout occurred in Brazil in the year 2001, the Energy security has become a matter of utmost importance in terms of To the development of the country. This factor caused some investments from the Public and private areas for the energy sector. A study conducted by the Institute Brazilian petroleum, Gas and biofuels (IBP), in 2015, pointed out a panorama Positive for the sector in the coming years, and at all points, forecasts have Materied.

According to the IBP, in the year 2012, the supply of renewable energies amounted to a value of 13% compared to the 15% forecast in 2020. Already by the data of the National energy balance, held this year by EPE (research company Energy) based on numbers of 2018, the capacity of wind generation has reached 48.5 TWh (Terawatt-hour), equivalent to a percentage of 14.4%. In agreement yet With a survey made by the Brazilian Association of Solar Energy Photovoltaic (Absolar), Brazil arrived, also in the last year, to the mark of 1 GW (gigawatt) of power generated by photovoltaic solar energy.

In this way, it is possible to verify the gradual growth in the The country’s energy landscape. Although Brazil still faces basic challenges Structure and supply, and although we know that there is much to develop, the Potential of the sector is, without doubt, promising.
