Brazil has already surpassed the 1 GW mark of operating power of the photovoltaic solar source and must exceed 2 GW in 2018. According to the Brazilian Association of Photovoltaic Solar Energy - ABSOLAR, there are more than 43 thousand distributed solar photovoltaic generation systems in operation , representing a growth of over 200% compared to the previous year, installed in homes, businesses, industries, rural properties and public buildings. Join us for a presentation and talk with Dr. Rodrigo Lopes Sauaia, Executive President of ABSOLAR, and understand what will be the role of the Northeast in the development of this promising expansion sector.

Do not miss this chance to learn more about the opportunities, challenges and potential of the photovoltaic solar market in the Northeast! Join us!
