BIREC 2018 Press Release

“The future is still bright for renewable energy in Brazil”

Rosa Elswood, Green Power Conferences

“Brazil is at a crossroads. The electoral debate is heating up, but the renewable energy movement shows no signs of slowing down.” according to Rosa Elswood from Green Power Conferences. “In the last few days, construction began on Enel’s Brazilian 475MW solar project.”

Industry commitment to Latin America’s largest economy was also demonstrated this week when Vestas revealed plans for nacelle production for its V150-4.2MW equipment in Brazil.

Brazil has been renowned for its political ups and downs, but despite these, the renewable energy industry has powered through and led Brazil to be the second biggest renewables market after China.

“The world has its eyes on Brazil as concrete plans for renewables under president-elect Jair Bolsonaro remain to be seen”, opines Rosa. “While his social and environmental policies are undoubtedly questionable, the BIREC Finance team message is: Brazil’s renewable energy revolution cannot be reversed.”

BIREC Finance, taking place 27-29 November in São Paulo, is the perfect opportunity to deep-dive into upcoming renewable energy plans to provide the energy needs of a nation of 209 million people. With 75 expert thought leaders, 35 hours of exclusive networking and 200 senior participants, BIREC Finance promises to be the must attend congress of 2019.
