Wind power is now the fastest growing source of electrical power in Brazil. Between August and December 2015, the installed capacity increased by 23% with 56 new wind farms, according to the Electric Power Trade Chamber.
Brazil hopes to reach 18.8 GW of wind capacity by 2019 with an average annual growth rate of 20%. This rate was 46% in 2015, higher than any other wind growth rate in the world.
Today, 6% of the Brazilian power matrix relies on wind energy, which means 45 million people are supplied or every home in the northeast region. This percentage, however, could reach 12% according to the 'Ten Year Plan for Energy Expansion 2024', produced by the Brazilian government. MORE
