The Basque Energy Cluster and EnergyIN are present in the business mission in Fortaleza and at the Brazilian ALL ENERGY Fair
- Nov 22, 2017
As part of the activities of the REINA PLUS project in Brazil, the Basque Energy Cluster and EnergyIN participated in the matchmaking event organised by LCBA in Fortaleza on 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th October, focusing on photovoltaic and wind power.
REINA PLUS ESCP took part in the agenda prepared by Low Carbon Business Action in Brasil, which included B2B interviews, focusing on the photovoltaic and wind power sectors. The participation included 16 European companies and 30 Brazilian companies with whom technical and commercial cooperation opportunities had been identified.
The conferences also included presentations on the situation of the Brazilian energy market, particularly the distributed generation market. This market continues its important expansion since the ANEEL 482/2012 and 687/2015 resolutions which compensate renewable generation without taxes for 60 months, which has led to the installation of numerous photovoltaic plants, mainly for the consumption of commercial and residential clients.
The visit to ALL-ENERGY, the renewable energy fair that is held in Fortaleza (Ceará state), on 4th-6th October confirmed the interest of the North Eastern States of Brazil to promote the expansion of these sources of energy.
Expectations suggest that if the current economic improvement is consolidated, the country will require a higher level of electricity generation, which will be channelled through renewable energy auctions.
