The energy market, like so many others, was affected by the covid-19 pandemic. Thinking about it, entities in the sector defended the role of solar energy in the country's economic recovery in the post-pandemic scenario, during a hearing in the Legislative Assembly of Minas Gerais. It is worth remembering that the state is a reference in policies to encourage photovoltaic generation, in addition to leading the number of generation facilities distributed in Brazil.
According to the president of the Brazilian Association of Photovoltaic Solar Energy (ABSOLAR), Rodrigo Sauaia, "the source can be a catapult of investments and jobs, opening opportunities and strengthening revenue after the pandemic." Sauaia also stated that ABSOLAR is in direct contact with the Federal Government's economic team for the inclusion of solar energy in future stimulus plans.

"The growth curve remains exponential, we believe that the market will continue to evolve in 2020. There is a large demand from companies for clean energy.ACESSE AS REDES DA PANORAMA OFFSHORE:
