Brazil has one of the lowest wind power generation costs. As such, there are so many outstanding opportunities for companies seeking to invest in this fast-growing wind market.

GWEC and Apex-Brasil are offering several opportunities for international companies who are interested in the Brazilian market to not only find out more about this exciting growing market but also to meet face-to-face with those stakeholders who are serious about doing business in their home country - Brazil.

Apex-Brasil, the Brazilian Trade and Investment agency, is organising a delegation of companies and authorities from across the Brazilian supply chain to visit EWEA 2015. GWEC is supporting the delegation with key activities to enable players from both sides of the geographic divide to get in touch and seal deals.

Overcoming barriers to international investment in wind energy: the case of local-content requirements

Geraldine Ang will present key findings from the recent OECD report Overcoming Barriers to International Investment in Clean Energy. This report highlights the increasing use of local-content rules in wind energy in emerging economies, as well as OECD countries, mostly since the 2008 financial crisis. It provides new evidence that such rules have hindered international investment in wind energy, in a context of global value chains.
