Analysis of the regulatory framework in Brazil 2011


With its large unpopulated land areas, a coastline of 9,600 km and excellent wind resources, Brazil is in a prime position to become a true wind energy giant, and it is slowly emerging as a key market for the international wind power industry. While growth in 2010 was still small in absolute terms, it represented a 50% increase in terms of total installed capacity, and Brazil just recently reached the magic threshold of 1,000 MW of wind power operating across the country.

This study, which was undertaken in cooperation between the Brazilian Wind Energy Association (ABEEolica) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) provides an in-depth analysis of the Brazilian wind energy market. It evaluates the effects of the regulatory approaches to date, analyses the market and the industry, pinpoints remaining obstacles and challenges, and provides recommendations for legislative improvements.
