Brazil’s Wind Power Push

Brazil’s Wind Power Push

Brazil, currently Latin America’s leading country in terms of renewable energy is expected to install 31.6GW of wind power by 2025, according to a recent study by HIS Emerging Energy Research. The latest step towards this goal is 400MW of generating capacity which is being supplied by GE Energy in the form of 258 of its advanced 1.5 and 1.6MW wind turbines to four utilities which participated in a clean energy auction in 2009.

They are: Renova Energia, Dobreve Energia, Contour Global and Bioenergy. Renova and DESA have previously selected GE, while Contour Global and Bioenergy are first time customers. GE has previously announced plans to invest US$500m in its operations in Brazil, including US$200m to develop its wind turbine, aero-derivative product activities and oil & gas activities.
