One more successful edition at an historic
moment for the Brazilian wind power sector

Brazil Windpower - Conference & Exhibition is the largest wind power event in Latin America providing the best opportunities for networking and business in this market. In 2016, the event took place in Rio de Janeiro over 3 consecutive days, from 30 August to 1 September, attracting the main sectoral authorities to discuss the growth of the Brazilian market during the conference programme and the main market players to the business exhibition in a sector that moves billions a year.
 
Over 2,800 attendees witnessed the great success of this seventh edition of Brazil Windpower at an historic moment for the Brazilian wind power sector. After a memorable 2015, all the 2016 numbers  suggest that new milestones have been achieved. One example is the 10 GW of installed capacity that was celebrated this year and which was highlighted in our conference programme.

 

Wind generation, with its industry is a success story in Brazil. Success needs to be expanded and maintained. There is much to do and the government must turn challenges into opportunities
