Opportunities for Renewable Energy in Brazil

24 April 2013

Renewable energy is playing an increasing role in Brazil’s energy outlook – Brazil has one of the world “greenest” and sustainable energy mix. Nearly 90% of electricity supplied in Brazil in 2012 came from renewable. In addition to traditional renewable sources such as hydro-electricity and sugar cane bagasse, Brazil is now developing a large number of wind and solar projects. 

In the period 2013-2017 Brazil is planning to add 10,000 MW of renewable power, consisting of wind, bioelectricity and small hydro plants. This workshop will discuss opportunities for investment in renewable energy in Brazil, the country regulatory framework, structuring and finance of projects, environmental markets, carbon price & risk management, and recent case studies.
