Intersolar, a firm out of São Paulo, Brazil, is hosting the 2016 International Exhibition and Convention for the South American Solar Business on August 23-25, 2016. This occasion is coined as “South America’s biggest solar occasion” and is set to take place in São Paulo, Brazil.
Intersolar has become the main platform for producers, suppliers, vendors, service providers and associates of the solar sector since being founded.
Brazil’s government intends to add wind energy plants with a cumulative result of over 15 gigawatts, in addition to photovoltaic systems providing a complete 4 gigawatts, to the state’s electricity supply by 2020. The following renewable energy auction, where electricity supply contracts could be won, shows that Brazil will reach 1 gigawatts of PV Capacity around by Fall of 2017.
Although it’s not the complete end product, the project has already resulted in over 2 gigawatts since first pitched in December 2013. In fact, it won a bid, which was a breakthrough that was reached in Fall of 2014. This extremely competitive command resulted in contracts being given to photovoltaic projects totaling 900 megawatts.
To date, the lowest solar energy costs (approx. 40 EUR/MWh) have been reached in the USA, though these are attributable to substantial government subsidies.
