The Brazilian photovoltaic solar energy market is experiencing a rapid growth phase, new projects and opportunities, both in the centralized generation (with the success of the recent energy auctions and the insertion of the photovoltaic solar source in the LEN A-6 of 2019), and distributed generation. The current regulatory framework, government incentives and the new financing options available in the market have stimulated a rapid growth of the source in Brazil, which since 2012 received more than R$15 billion in private investments in all regions and States, creating over 72000 new jobs up to 2018.
The webinar will show the evolution of the source, the sector and the Brazilian photovoltaic solar market and its recent opportunities and will have a Q&A with Dr. Rodrigo Lopes Sauaia, CEO of ABSOLAR.
