Brazil Windpower is the biggest event in Latin America dedicated to business development and wind power generation projects in Brazil and Latin America. Taking place from 29-31 August, Brazil Windpower is the ideal meeting place for entrepreneurs, consultants, executives, manufacturers, service providers and professionals in general involved in wind power in the region.
Registration for Brazil Windpower 2017 is now open
With abundant wind resources, Brazil moved up to 9th place globally in terms of installed wind capacity in 2016, passing the 10 GW milestone, and bringing the total installed wind capacity to 10.74 GW. However, wind was not included in the 2016 auctions. What can we expect from the auctions taking place later this year and how will affect the wind industy going forward ?
