Renewable Sources - Growth in Brazil
Brazil is advancing positively in the contribution of the Environment preservation through the generation of energy with renewable sources.
Currently the most representative energy matrix is still hydraulics, but in the last 5 years photovoltaic energy (solar) installed potential has gone from 7 megawatts (MW) to 1,300 MW. This number trend is to grow exponentially due to new technologies, market opening and the Brazilian commitment to reach the goals of – having 45% of its energy matrix from renewable sources and obtaining 10% of gains in energy efficiency in the electric sector both bringing the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG). These targets were set out in the Paris Agreement (COP21) in 2015.
This growth will reach even more significant values by 2030, which will contribute to the reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases, which causes global warming. Most of the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere results from the burning of fossil fuels (carbon, oil and natural gas).
Another notable factor is that by the year 2030 there will be more employment opportunities for Brazilians, according to estimates from the National Industrial Learning Service (SENAI). Jobs for professionals with expertise in energy efficiency and distributed generation can reach more than 450K.
Energy from renewable sources brings the opportunity to reduce the electricity bill and, at the same time, to reduce the emission of Greenhouse Gases, which will bring more institutional value to your company and your business due to this environmental responsibility and profitability.
