Brazil Solar Power – Conference & Exhibition, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, on June 30 and July 01, is the official Brazilian PV event, organized by the PV Market official association and by the main content provider of the Brazilian electrical sector. The conferente will address highly relevant issues, both on large-scale generation and rooftop generation.  The trade show offers flexible opportunities that meet the needs and investment availability of both small and large businesses.
 

 

 
Investing in photovoltaic solar energy in Brazil in coming years will bring good results, similarly to the success experienced by the Brazilian wind sector. In 2016, the government expects a new investment cycle to take place, attracting more entrepreneurs to invest in the country.
— Eduardo Braga, Former Minister of Mines and Energy of Brazil
 

 
 

Centralized Generation
(Large-Scale PV)

Since 2014, the Brazilian government has set a milestone of adding 1 GW of large-scale PV capacity per year through solar electricity auctions. This policy has resulted in more than 2 GW of contracts to deliver PV electricity during the next 20 years. 

Distributed Generation
(Rooftop PV)

In addition to booming growth in the short term, small-scale PV is expected to reach grid parity in the majority of Brazilian States in less than five years. In the long term, rooftop PV in forecasted to represent between 6% and 9% of all electricity demand of the country by 2050.

TESTIMONIALS

In 2015 Brazil will have two separate PV auctions, with delivery dates in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Our goal is to indicate to manufacturers that they should come to Brazil, as we will have enough PV demand for the industry. We will maintain at least one PV auction every year.
— Mauricio Tolmasquim, President of the Brazilian Energy Planning Authority (Empresa de Pesquisa Energética)
 
 
The Brazilian PV sector is now being considered as a strategic opportunity by the government. ABSOLAR expects opportunities to multiply both in the distributed generation and large-scale PV market segments. Prospects are very positive for the short, mid and long term.
— Dr. Rodrigo Lopes Sauaia, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Brazilian Photovoltaic Solar Energy Association - ABSOLAR
