December Brazil Energy Auction To Feature 3.6 GW Of Solar PV & 16.42 GW Of Wind Power

The auction has seen a record highest number of applications since the energy tender auctions began in Brazil in 2005, and also a record highest number for solar PV in the auctions. More than 929 power projects have registered to take part in the auction, including 162 solar projects and 670 wind energy projects — with the remaining numbers being from hydro, mini-hydro and biomass, coal, and natural gas plants. The projects as a whole total more than 35 GW of potential energy capacity — successful projects are expected to be online sometime by the year 2018.
