Why Brazil Could Be the Next Global Solar Superpower and why you should keep an eye on it

"Latin America is the world's most exciting region for solar development. Led by Chile, Brazil, and Mexico, we're anticipating Latin America's solar market to grow 55% this year alone.” says Manan Parikh, Analyst at Greentech Media at the Q2 2016 Latin America PV Playbook.
Let’s learn from Manan about the latest market developments in LATAM:

  • GTM Research expects a decline in the Chilean market but for Mexico to install a massive 2 GW, which would allow Mexico could host the region’s largest volume of installed PV by 2018.

  • GTM Research also expects 2016 to be a breakout year for Brazil, with around 300 MW installed. Over the last six months several PV projects larger than 200 MW have begun construction in the nation, by far the largest projects to do so to date.

  • In Chile, Brazil and Mexico large volumes of solar PV have been awarded through auction processes, with solar in many cases beating out other technologies. GTM Research estimates that solar won 20% of the recent capacity offered in Chile, 63% in Brazil and 72% in Mexico

And why should we focus on Brazil?
